Martin Buessler joins the group as a PhD student. Martin did his Master degree in Matter and Material in extreme conditions and his Diploma of Engineer in Physics and Computer sciences at the Polytechnic school and at the University of Orléans in France. Combining fundamental understanding of matter behaviours and engineering competences, for his PhD thesis, he will investigate the fundamental mechanisms of photo-catalytic water splitting using vibrational SFG spectroscopy.
