Florian Wodlei (IPA: [floːɐ̯ʀi̯an voːdlaɪ̯])
Born in 1983, november I grew up in Carinthia, Austria and attended the Waldorfschule in Klagenfurt from autumn 1990. Already at that time I was interested in the natural phenomena. My maths and physics teacher Mihnea Hristea introduced me into the field of science.
From that time on I was fascinated in this field, specially in a chemical reaction, the Belousov Zhabotinsky reaction on which I was working for the final year project. After finishing the higher education entrance qualification I studied physics and chemistry at the Karl-Franzens university in Graz where I specialised in the field of theoretical (bio-)physics. I wrote my master thesis under the supervision of Hans-Hennig von Grünberg on the topic of Lipid Droplet Biogenesis (see research section). I finished my studies in physics in 2010.
From 2010 on I was teacher in physics, mathematics, irformation technology and chemistry at Waldorfschule Salzburg. During this time I could deepen my understanding in the basics of physcis, mathematics and chemistry and also followed my passion of teaching. And I continued also my research on the Belousov Zhabotinsky reaction on which soon my student Florian Wimmer was helping me.
From autumn 2014 I am a PhD student in chemistry in Toulouse, France and work with Véronique Pimienta invstigating the complex dissolution process of a Dichloromethane droplet in a surfactant containing aqueous solution at the institute of chemistry, Université Paul Sabatier.
