Studied mechanical engineering at the RWTH Aachen in Germany and worked as a research assistant at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT) in Aachen in the field of ultra-precision machine tools. He developed ultra-precision machinery and fast-tool systems for the production of optical free-form surfaces. He finished this work at Fraunhofer IPT with his dissertation about the manufacturing of discontinuous microstructures using fast-tool-technology and diamond cutting tools. Since 2010 he works at SCHNEIDER optical machines in Fronhausen, Germany, as the Manager Ultra-Precision Technology, and develops ultra-precision lathes and manufacturing technologies for freeform surface production for different applications like consumer and electro optics, space, molds, or contact lenses and IOLs.
