Ariane Giesriegl

Ariane was born and raised in Vienna. She received her Master’s Degree in Chemistry in 2015 from the University of Vienna working with Prof. Kautek. During her Master she gained some work experience at QuantaRed Technologies and further educated herself studying Physics at the Vienna University of Technology. She started her PhD in Chemistry supervised by Prof. Dominik Eder in 2017. It is going great!


Current research

Ariane’s interests include Heterogeneous Photocatalysis, Material Characterization, Ultra-Thin Films, Optics, Lasers and Data Evaluation. Right now she is working on the deposition and characterization of ultra-thin films on model photocatalysts with the overall aim to study reaction mechanisms, charge carrier dynamics and reactant selectivity of the materials.

She is currently involved in the following MMC group projects: Core-shell structures and nanovoids
