Personal details

Philipp Pleßow studied chemistry at the KIT and graduated in 2010 with a diploma in chemistry. He obtained his PhD in 2014 with Prof. Dr. Hofmann at Heidelberg University with a thesis on homogeneously catalyzed reactions in cooperation with BASF and CaRLa. After postdoctoral studies at SUNCAT (Stanford University) with Dr. Abild-Pedersen and Prof. Dr. Nørskov, he moved to IKFT where he is now a group leader since 2016. His main research areas are the theoretical investigation of zeolite-catalyzed reactions and catalyst deactivation through sintering.
