Curriculum Vitae

Lothar Veith studied chemistry at the University of Goettingen where he got his Bachelor of Science degree in 2010 working on the characterization of protein adsorption on solid-supported lipid membranes by impedance spectroscopy and quartz crystal microbalance in the group of Prof. Dr. Claudia Steinem. During his Master studies he specialized on analytical chemistry/mass spectrometry graduating in 2012 after development and optimization of an ambient ionization source for high-resolution mass spectrometry in the group of Prof. Dr. Uwe Karst under supervision of Dr. Carsten Engelhard at the University of Muenster. He then pursued his PhD at the surface-analytical laboratory Tascon GmbH in Muenster (specialized in: ToF-SIMS, XPS, LEIS, profilometry) working on the detection of nanoparticles in tissue sections by Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry.
In February 2018 Lothar joined Prof. Dr. Tanja Weil's team at the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research, where he is now part of the mass spectrometry research group of Dr. Joachim Raeder. Lothars research focuses on mass spectrometric imaging, combinations of mass spectrometry with complementary techniques and Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry.
