Into the spring with new team members
Spring has brought many new things for the consilab team. We are pleased that five new colleagues have found their way into our team in the last few weeks and we would like to give them a warm welcome!
Bettina Dresen has been supporting our team assistance since March. Ms. Dresen spent many years working at Industriepark Höchst, where she gained extensive experience in the typing office, in team assistance and as an archivist for GLP.
Dr. Verena Gramm holds a doctorate from the Institute for Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Cologne. The focus of her work was on characterization of new organometallic materials. Due to her extensive studies, Dr. Gramm has a broad range of chemical expertise and has already gained relevant experience in the field of analytics, which she has been applying superbly in our GLP division since April.
With the addition of David Zink, Dipl.-Chem., we have succeeded in recruiting an expert for our thermal stability area. Mr. Zink is about to complete his doctorate in the field of high-pressure synthesis of low density polyethylene (LDPE). In this context, he primarily dealt with topics in the area of inherent safety and the design of pressure limiting devices.
With Leonid Lewschin, Dipl.-Chem., we have recruited yet another expert for our chemical reactions area. In his dissertation, which he has just completed at the Institute of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Hamburg, he dealt with the experimental optimization of an isoperibolic reaction calorimeter. In addition, he has relevant experience with reaction calorimeters including the RC1 and Chemisens reaction calorimeters, and with the statistical validation of caloric measurements.
Since May our laboratory team has been supported by Ms. Marina Tanner. Ms. Tanner is a chemical laboratory assistant who previously worked at the Industriepark Höchst. She is familiar with measurement methods such as HPLC, grain size distribution and UV-Vis. She is now supporting our team in the dust laboratory.
The consilab team hopes these new colleagues thoroughly enjoy their new workplace!
