Meet Nina Oehlsen

Nina Oehlsen M.Sc. is currently a PhD student at the Institute of Nanoscale and Biobased Materials at the Technische University Bergakademie Freiberg.

Nina is interested in the study of biominerals and the bioinspired synthesis of nanocomposites. Furthermore, she takes biogenic materials and tries to optimize their (mechanical) properties with the hope to replace conventional materials e.g., plastics with recyclable ones.

She started her PhD at the Institute of Interfacial Process Engineering and Plasma Technology (IGVP) of the University of Stuttgart c/o the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology and moved to Freiberg on October 2023. For her PhD she has a Liebig scholarship funded by the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie.

In 2021 she received her master’s degree in physics at the Georg-August-University Göttingen with a focus on material science where studied the failure of atom probe tomography tips. Her bachelor in physics she also completed at the university Göttingen in 2020.
