PhD MARYAM SHAKER

Physics Lecturer

“I want to make the world of physics tangible and perceivable for you. Be curious.”

Maryam Shaker completed her PhD in physics in 2014 in Germany. During her education, she was honored with numerous awards. She was awarded the honorary grade (grade 1) at the University of Alexandria in 2007 and the 1st grade in the M.Sc. for the degree in physics in the academic year 2007-2008. Her current research project, “The Electrororeductive Synthesis of Fuels Powered by Renewable Energy Sources,” has already garnered worldwide interest.

PhD OLAF NACHTIGALL

Chemistry Lecturer

“In my lessons, I give you the basis for successful medical laboratory work.”

Olaf Nachtigall is an experienced lecturer in chemistry. He has also worked as a research assistant at the Free University of Berlin. Here, he supervised undergraduates in the laboratory course “General and Inorganic Chemistry”. In addition, he was a lecturer in “Experimental Techniques for School Practice” – lecture part “Dyes” at the Free University and lecturer in “Chemistry for students of integrated science.”

PD DR. DIPL. PHYS. STEPHAN M. FISCHER

Physics Lecturer

“Why should I learn physics – I want to become a doctor? Because physics is tested in the first state medical exam and because physics knowledge is a prerequisite for understanding physiology.”

Prof. Stephan M. Fischer studied physics and philosophy at the Universities of Innsbruck, Constance, Berlin and Paris. He received his doctorate from the TU Berlin and the University of Cambridge, UK. In addition, he completed a degree in neurobiology, evolutionary biology and molecular genetics at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2008 he graduated as a professor with a thesis on the basics of physics, biology and history at the TU Berlin. Since his studies in Berlin he has worked as a tutor in physics internships for physicians (human, dental and veterinary medicine as well as for pharmacists). Since 1998 he has held a lectureship at the TU Berlin and is responsible for the laboratory internships, with about 100 students and 10 tutors.

DR. STEFAN KIRSTEIN

Physics Lecturer

“I offer you a comprehensive introduction to the relevant foundations of physics.”

Stefan Kirstein studied physics at the Technical University of Munich. During his doctorate he founded, together with Dr. Ing. Hans Riegler, the Riegler & Kirstein GmbH. After receiving his doctorate at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz in 1999, Dr. Kirstein has held a postdoctoral position at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Dr. Kirstein worked for 5 years as a research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces and habilitated in 2000 with the topic “Self-assembled composites of conjugated compounds and semiconductor nanocrystals”. Kirstein works as a research associate and lecturer at the Physical Institute of the Humboldt University.
