Von Klitzing, Prof. Regine

Regine von Klitzing studied Physics at the Technical University Braunschweig and at the University of Göttingen, Germany. She received her PhD in 1996 from Mainz University, Germany. After her Post-doc (1996-1997) at the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal (CRPP/CNRS) in Pessac/Bordeaux, France, she was working as an assistant professor at the Technical University (TU) Berlin, Germany, and got her habilitation in 2003. In 2004 Regine von Klitzing was a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces (MPI-KG) in Postdam, Germany. From 2004 to 2006 she was an associate professor for Physical Chemistry at the Chemistry department of the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, Germany. In 2006 she became associate professor at the TU Berlin and in 2010 full professor for Physical Chemistry (chair). Since March 2017 Regine von Klitzing is full professor at the Physics department of the TU Darmstadt. There, she is building up a new institute for Soft Matter.Her research interests address interfacial phenomena in Soft Matter, especially of stimuli responsive polymer coatings, foams and emulsions. The work covers the full area from synthesis of polymer systems, via the design of novel hybrid systems and their characterisation with complex methods to the development of new sample environments for large facilities. Her main expertise is on AFM and scattering methods (neutron, x-ray, light).Regine v. Klitzing is excited about working in the interdisciplinary field of Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Material Science.
