Philipp Jöckle studied chemistry, german studies and physics in education at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He graduated (1. Staatsexamen) with the scientific thesis “Dispersionskompensation in einem Femtosekundenlasersystem” in 2016. Since 2016, Philipp Jöckle works on a collaborative PhD project between Prof. Christopher Barner-Kowollik (QUT) and PD Andreas-Neil Unterreiner at the KIT. He is an associated member of the DFG-funded graduate school “GRK 2039 – Molecular Architectures for Fluorescent Cell Imaging” since April 2017.
His research focusses on the development of photophysical and -chemical mechanisms for visible-light triggered model systems. The characterization of competing photophysical processes is important for an in-depth mechanistic understanding, which could improve the taylor-made design of new fluorescent molecules. For example, the in-depth understanding of the photophysical mechanism of tetrazoles could enable a systematic improvement of the formation of fluorescent polymer single-chain nanoparticles (Project A1).
