Studied chemistry at the University of Gießen before moving in 1990 to the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research. In 1992 he was awarded a Ph.D. for work carried out in the group of Prof. G. Petzow on the synthesis and properties of ceramic solids in the ternary and quaternary BCN and TiBCN systems. He is now a member of the research staff of the Max Planck Institute, where he heads a research group.

The preparation of ceramic materials from preceramic compounds provides a means for the synthesis of new materials which cannot be obtained by conventional methods. An example is shown in the figure, which shows carbon-fiber-reinforced silicon carbide coated with silicon carbonitride prepared by dip-coating the substrate with a slurry made of polyhydridomethylsilazane and silicon powder. Progress and applicational examples are reviewed
