Dr. Oliver Schneider

PhD Candidate

Oliver received his BSc in Nanostructure Technology, a solid state physics program, at the University of Würzburg in 2013. Subsequently he spent one year as a visiting student researcher at the University of California in Berkeley investigating the strain-dependent phase transition of magnetic FeRh thin films. He completed his Master’s thesis back at the University of Würzburg in 2016 working on a tunable cavity for single molecule spectroscopy. Thereafter, Oliver joined the Loskill-Lab focusing on the implementation and characterization of cardiac tissues in microphysiological platforms (Heart on Chip). In his spare time he enjoys travelling, hiking and photography. Furthermore, he consistently blows Ibra’s mind with his perfect basketball shots landing in a splendid arc in the hoop.
