Sascha Vongehr studied philosophy, mathematics, chemistry, and physics in Germany, obtained a B.S. degree in theoretical physics (electromagnetism) and M.S. degree (string theory) at Sussex University, UK, and subsequently researched quantum gravity (black holes, two-time theory) at the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, USA. His Ph.D. degree from the University of Southern California, in 2005, is on nanotechnology experiments and statistics of nontrivial cluster size distributions. He completed postdoctoral positions in neuroscience of the visual system at the USC Psychology Department in 2006, in nanotechnology and cosmology at Nanjing University Physics Department in 2010, and in philosophy of science and modern physics at the Nanjing University Philosophy Department in 2012. Vongehr has mainly published in the field of nanotechnology and is currently officially affiliated with the National Laboratory of Solid State Microstructures of Nanjing University as Research Fellow, nonteaching faculty. His scientific outreach efforts to further the public understanding of science include a science column on science 2.0 where he has become a featured author.
