Mark H Rummeli

Following the completion of his PhD at London Metropolitan University,Professor Mark H Rümmeli spent several years working in the United States and the West Indies developing e-learning platforms for HealthCare education.Subsequent to this he joined the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) a joint research collaboration between the German SpaceAgency (DLR) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA). He then joined the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Science, in Germany, where he was responsible for founding the Molecular Nanostructures Group which he still oversees at present. He then worked in the Republic of South Korea as a professor in the Department of Energy Science at Sungkyunkwan University. While in the aforementioned role, he was concurrently appointed as the founder of the Structural Analysis Group within the Korean Institute of Basic Science.  He currently works as a professor at the College of Physics, Optoelectronics and Energy, at Soochow University, in China where he is in the process of establishing a research group which will utilize state of the art transmission electron microscopy for the investigation of novel nano-materials and their structures. He is appointed as a guest-professor at Wuhan University. Professor Mark H Rümmeli as well heads a nano-sensorlaboratory at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He collaborates globally with many outstanding research universities and institutes such as: Peking University, the University of Oxford, NASA Ames Research Laboratories, Wuhan University, Cornell University, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) among others.To date, Professor Mark H. Rümmeli has published over 250 scientific papers with many appearing in leading journals such as Science and Nature Nanotechnology.
