New colleagues on both sites
We have not slowed in our efforts to strengthen our team in recent months.
We were able to add Dr.-Ing Christina Kuchta to our team already in October. After completing her doctorate at the TU Darmstadt on the stability of ethylene high-pressure polymerization mixtures in experiments and simulation, she had already worked for more than 8 years as a development engineer in the safety engineering department of a large company, where she was involved in the assessment of exothermic reactions and classification according to transport law, thermal stability, safety parameters and safe handling of deposited dusts.
With this experience, Dr. Kuchta is naturally a perfect fit for the consilab team, where she works as a technical expert and GLP test manager in the fields of chemical reaction safety and safe handling of dusts.
Mr. Jonas Nowottny, M.Sc., decided to join the consilab team immediately after completing his master’s thesis at the TU Darmstadt on the topic of “Thermophysical properties under pressures up to 3,000 bar”. Through the development and comparison of measurement methods to determine pressure-dependent material data for gases, liquids and polymers, Mr. Nowottny brings useful experience as well as the latest scientific findings to our team, where he is primarily involved in calorimetry and pressure heat accumulation experiments in the area of thermal stability.
Ms. Jessica Pollak has been supporting the consilab team since last summer. Ms. Pollak is a trained chemical laboratory assistant and as such has already been able to gain experience in the GMP area. This makes her a great addition to the consilab team, especially in the area of GLP.
After completing his training as a chemical technician, Mr. Marian Muschik was employed by a large German company where he had already worked in a pharmaceutical laboratory. After continuing his training to become a CTA, he decided to join the consilab team. Mr. Muschik has been working here in the dust laboratory since September.
With Mr. Dirk Bender, M.Sc., the consilab team was able to welcome an old friend to its group of colleagues, as he had already completed an internship with us in 2016 as part of his bachelor’s degree. We are delighted that he has decided to return to the consilab team now after completing his master’s degree with a focus on physical chemistry from Goethe University in Frankfurt. Mr. Bender has been supporting us since April as a consultant in the area of thermal stability.
Dr. Markus Lansing has been supporting the consilab team at our site in Leverkusen since April 1. After obtaining his doctorate in organic chemistry, he worked on a research project on the use of exhaust gases from the steel industry as a raw material for chemical syntheses. At consilab, Dr. Lansing will initially focus on the area of thermal stability and will also supervise construction of the new RC1 laboratory.
The whole consilab team is delighted to gain the great support of their new colleagues and warmly welcomes them into the fold.
