4) Nanostructures and spatial patterns self-organized by surface phenomena
Supervisor: Jerzy Gorecki
Richard Löffler was born in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. In 1998 the whole family moved to Denmark. In Denmark Richard went to a german Elementary and High School before starting to Study at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense. At SDU Richard got his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in Nanobioscience, working mostly at the Fundamental Living Technologies (FLinT) group, led by Prof. Steen Rasmussen and under the supervision of Prof. Pierre-Alain Monnard. Here he worked in the field of Biophysics, Nanomedicine, Origin of Life and Artificial life. After obtaining his M.Sc. degree in 2015, Richard took a break from Academia to teach Mathematics and Chemistry at a High School in Odense before he, in May 2017, joined the Department of Complex Systems and Chemical Processing of Information, led by Prof. Jerzy Gorecki at the IPC. There he works on studying self-propelled motion of different non-biological systems and ordered spatial patterns which can appear as the result of different surface phenomena like dewetting or evaporation.
