Hannes C. Schniepp graduated with an M.S. degree in physics (Diplomphysiker) from University of Konstanz (Germany) in 1999 in the group of Jürgen Mlynek. His Ph.D. degree was carried out under the guidance of Vahid Sandoghdar in the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland, where he graduated in 2004. Between 2004 and 2008, he was a Postdoc Research Scholar in the group of Ilhan Aksay in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Princeton University. Since 2008, Hannes Schniepp holds an appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Science at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Hannes Schniepp is interested in interfacial science as well as in the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials. Investigated systems include graphene and other 2D nanomaterials, polymer nanocomposites, silks, molecular self-assembly at the solid/liquid interface, and oil/mineral interactions. One of the principal techniques to characterize these systems is scanning probe microscopy.
