Prof. Ann-Christin Pöppler
Ann-Christin is a trained chemist with a PhD in inorganic chemistry (University of Göttingen, 2013), where she worked with NMR in solution and anisotropic media. She was introduced to the world of solid-state NMR and to a smaller extent also to XRD and computational methods through her postdoctoral experiences. After postdoctoral stays at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Göttingen, 2014) and the Department of Physics at Warwick University (UK, 2014-2016), she had the great opportunity to start her own research group as a Junior Professor of Organic Structural Chemistry at the University of Würzburg. Since October 2016 she is now combining the different research areas and wants to use as well as expand the versatile NMR toolbox to look at polymeric drug delivery systems both from the solid-state and solution point of view with the aim of gaining an increased understanding of the structure and behaviour of these mostly amorphous host-guest systems. Apart from sitting at the spectrometer, Ann-Christin very much enjoys teaching and training of students both in the lecture hall as well as in the workgroup.
