Dr. Michael Speidel
Dr. Michael Speidel holds a PhD in physics. Based on his knowledge in natural science he also provides experience in industrial sensor development. He contributes his combined practical engineering skills and scientific expertise to the team.

Technical Expertise
Education/Science: Studies of physics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, the Ångström Laboratory, University of Uppsala, Sweden and the John Curtin School of Medical Research, National University of Canberra, Australia with major fields of study in biophysics and solid state physics. His PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Nuclear Physics focused on the topic of anthropogenic atmospheric aerosol formation. At the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) of the University of Freiburg, Germany, Dr. Speidel had a DFG scholarship at the Bio- and Nano-Photonics Research group as a Post Doc, where he studied the three dimensional interaction of colloidal particles means interferometric tracking in dynamic optical traps.
Industry: SICK AG, Waldkirch, Germany - R&D engineer in industrial automation; Innovative Sensor Technology IST AG, Ebnat-Kappel, Switzerland - R&D engineer in sensor technology.

IP Expertise
Dr. Michael Speidel joined WALLINGER RICKER SCHLOTTER TOSTMANN as a patent engineer and is pursuing his professional qualification as a patent attorney. During his former industry activities he has already dealt with intellectual property rights, in particular in the context of his own applications. He is working predominantly in the fields having a physical reference, in particular in the fields of medical- biotechnology, artificial intelligence, optics and IT.
