Asbach is president of the Society for Aerosol Research and an internationally recognized expert in this field.

In about 100 publications, he has dealt with dust exposure at workplaces, particle contamination in the semiconductor industry and particle formation in automotive wheel brakes, among other topics. And during the Corona pandemic, he spoke on television and radio stations, as well as regional and national newspapers, about how aerogenic viruses transmit.

At the UDE, Asbach has been teaching the Environmental Measurement Technology lecture in the master's programs in mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and NanoEngineering since the summer semester of 2013.

Asbach studied electrical engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen and earned his doctorate under Prof. Fissan. After nearly two years of post-doctoral research at the University of Minnesota, he became a research associate at IUTA in 2006. Since 2013, he has headed the Filtration & Aerosol Research Department there.
