Michael did his education and training in solid-state physics with a specific focus on X-ray and neutron scattering and imaging methods to gain fundamental insight into the nature of various materials. Here, with a particular focus on multiferroic materials and magnetic alloys. His Ph.D. work was focused on developing methods to perform in situ X-ray scattering of roll-to-roll coating organic solar cells to unfold the drying kinetics of the donor/acceptor. This has given him a great understanding of building and designing cutting-edge machinery on roll-to-roll while addressing scientific questions. After his Ph.D., he joined FOM technologies to continue work on developing new methods to tackle the LAB-to-FAB challenge within photovoltaics and solid-state batteries, which he believe is paramount for the green energy transition.
