Short bio

Niko Münzenrieder heads the Flexible Electronics Laboratory. Niko received a Dipl. Phys. degree in physics from the Technical University Munich in 2008, where he worked on vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser diodes at the Walter Schottky Institute. In 2009, he joined the Electronics Laboratory at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH), were he received a Dr. sc. (PhD) degree in electrical engineering in 2014, and the ETH medal in 2015. From 2015 to 2019 he was a Lecturer, later Senior Lecturer in Sensor Technology at the University of Sussex. He joined the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano in July 2019.
