Angelika has graduated with a degree in Physics from the University of Freiburg i. Br. in Germany. For her final thesis she has investigated the influence of additives on the degradation behaviour of Ethylenvinylacetate at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Freiburg. Previously she has spent 6 months at the Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems in Boston, MA. There she has contributed to the investigation of potential measurement methods of the EVA crosslinking degree. After obtaining her degree she has worked as a guest scientist at the Tsinghua University in Beijing.
At the MML Angelika works experimentally and computationally on the development of polymeric nanofoams. One of the objectives of her PhD is to gain a better understanding of the polymeric properties that enhance the development of nanofoams.
