Tim Hülser graduated from Duisburg University in physics in 2003 and worked afterwards for four years at the Institute for Combustion and Gasdynamics, IVG, at the University of Duisburg-Essen in the field of nanoparticle characterization and gas sensing properties of nanoparticulate semi-conducting materials. Then he moved to the Association of German Engineers (VDI) and worked as consultant in the field of future technologies with emphasis on wireless data transport, internet of things and automotive applications. 2009 Tim Hülser moved to the Institute of Energy and Environmental Technology (IUTA) in Duisburg. Since 2011 he directs the division „Particle process technology & Characterization“ of IUTA, where highly-specific nanoparticles are synthesized from the gas-phase on the pilot-plant scale, are being process for pre-industrial development and characterized. From 2016 his group additionally takes care of nano particle related workplace safety, emission and environmental effects.
