Christoph joined the Chueh group in February 2018 as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in a joint position between Stanford University and RWTH Aachen University in Germany. Before coming to Stanford, he worked at Research Center Jülich (Germany) as a PhD student and Postdoc, receiving a PhD in Physics from Aachen University in 2016. He also received an MS in Materials Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign and a BS in Materials Science from RWTH Aachen University. Focusing on fabrication and in situ characterization of single-crystalline thin film surfaces, he aims to answer fundamental questions about complex oxides for alkaline water splitting reactions and their evolution during electrochemical processes to help guide the route towards energy storage through hydrogen production. In his spare time, he enjoys playing and watching soccer, classical music, and spending time with his dogs Bruno and Oskar.
