Dr. Michael Speidel holds a doctorate in physics. He has been part of the Wallinger Ricker Schlotter Tostmann team as a patent engineer since the beginning of 2019.
In addition to his scientific education, Dr. Michael Speidel has experience in industrial sensor development and therefore combines practical, technical skills with scientific expertise in advising our clients to their benefit.
Studies of physics at the University of Heidelberg, 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 Institute for Microsystems Technology (IMTEK) of the University of Freiburg, Dr. Speidel worked as a scientific employee (Post-Doc) in the research group for bio- and nanophotonics within the framework of his research fellowship of the German Research Foundation (DFG). His work focused on the three-dimensional interaction of colloidal particles by means of interferometric tracking in dynamic optical traps.
Legal protection through his own patent applications during his work in industry, Dr. Speidel is currently completing his training as a Patent Attorney. His technical work focuses on physics, in particular medical technology, biotechnology, artificial intelligence (AI), optics and IT.
