Philipp studied Nanostructure Sciences at the University of Kassel. In 2010 he completed his diploma thesis on the patterning of insect neurons via microcontact printing as a joint project between the University of Kassel and the Research Center Jülich. He then stayed in Jülich to persue his PhD at the ICS-8 Bioelectronics. During this time his research focused on two main topics: The actuation of magnetic microparticles for mechanical and chemical stimulation of cells via chip-based platforms and the influence of thermal stimulation and lesion on cellular networks. He completed his PhD on these topics at the RWTH Aachen in 2014 followed by PostDoc work at the ICS-8 in Jülich.
In 2015, Philipp joined Prof. Wolfrum in starting the Neuroelectronics group at TUM. Since then his research focuses on printing-based fabrication approaches for bioelectronic and life science applications. His interests cover the application of inkjet, aerosol jet, stereolithography, or capillary plotting in this context. In particular, he aims to exploit the advantages of these technologies in the development of large-area, low-cost sensor and stimulator arrays.
