Meet Shih-Yu

Dr. Shih-Yu Tseng is currently a postdoctoral fellow 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.

She is interested in the interdisciplinary research on the fundamentals and applications of nanomaterials in terms of colloids, thin films, and composites that could contribute to a sustainable future.

She obtained her doctoral degree in physical chemistry at the University of Stuttgart in 2022. Her Ph.D. focused on the fundamentals and applications of versatile (micro)emulsion systems. She specializes in characterizing soft matter microstructures with the large-scale small-angle neutron scattering technique. In the meantime, she also has intensively engaged in industrial projects funded by the corporate and BMWi, working on industrial formulations of microemulsions.

In 2016 she received her master’s degree in biomedical engineering at the National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. Her research topic focused on the development of a novel paper-based plasmonic sensor for rapid biohazards and environmental contamination detection. In the last year of her master’s study, she received a scholarship for her one-year academic exchange program at the University of Stuttgart. In 2013, she completed her B.Sc. in the Honors Program of Nano Science and Engineering at the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan.
