Our independent Advisory Board consists of 3 renowned international scientists and entrepreneurial thought-leaders from the field of electron microscopy. The task of our Advisory Board is to advise us on our long-term scientific and economic strategy.
To this end, we meet with our Advisory Board several times a year to share insights on scientific topics, research results, market developments and trends, current challenges and technical issues in the industry, and to exchange ideas together.
The critical feedback, impulses and network help us to systematically improve and find added value and inspiration for our further development and our customers. In this way, we ensure that our products, services and measures meet their needs and challenges and provide a solution for our customers to get the best out of their electron microscopes.
Members of our Advisory Boards
Life is too short to waste it on bad equipment.
Prof. Dr. Marc Georg Willinger is professor at Technical University of Munich where he holds the Chair of Electron Microscopy.
Prof. Dr. Willinger studied physics at the Technical University in Vienna and completed his PhD at the Technical University Berlin. Following a Post Doc stint at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, he spent four years as an independent researcher at the University of Aveiro in Portugal. In 2011, he returned to the Fritz Haber Institute as a group leader. There, he initiated the development and implementation of tools for multi-scale in-situ and operando electron microscopy. He later led a second electron microscopy group at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in 2015 and served as the technical director at the Scientific Center of Optical and Electron Microscopy (ScopeM) at ETH Zurich in 2018. In mid-2021, he accepted a professorship at TUM and began his tenure in April 2022.

Dr. Lewys Jones is Ussher Assistant Professor in Ultramicroscopy at the Trinity College Dublin.
He also serves as the President of the Microscopy Society of Ireland, is a Fellow of the Royal Society and Science Foundation Ireland University Research, is the Director of the SFI-EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Characterisation at Trinity College Dublin and is editorial board member at The Royal Society journal.

Dr. Dirk Berger is head of the Central Facility for Electron Microscopy (ZELMI) at the Technische Universität Berlin.
Dirk Berger studied physics and received his doctorate in scanning electron microscopy from the Technische Universität Berlin under Prof. Dr. Heinz Niedrig. As a post-doc, he was involved in the construction of a 7T wiggler at the Berlin synchrotron light source BESSY II. Since 2004 he has been head of the central Electron Microscopy Laboratory ZELMI at the TU Berlin. In addition to management tasks and teaching, he is also involved in research support, initially on the SEM, then on the conventional TEM, on the dual-beam device FIB/SEM and since 2020 with element-specific analyses on the corrected HR-STEM. Dirk Berger has also initiated the working groups IGEME and WS-SEM of the German Society for Electron Microscopy DGE as well as a working group of the Berlin FIB Community.
