About the Author

Andreas Schmidt-Ott obtained his PhD from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of ETH, Zurich, Switzerland, in 1979. He remained at ETH as a (senior) research fellow in the domains of solid-state physics and atmospheric physics until 1988. Subsequently, he joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at Duisburg University, Germany, as assistant professor and then became associate professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the same university, where he was deputy faculty chair from 1998 to 2001. He accepted a full professorship in nanoparticle technology at the Chemical Engineering Department of the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, where he has an emeritus status since 2018. Since 2016, he is also adjunct professor at the Cyprus Institute, Nicosia. Prof. Dr. Schmidt-Ott has served as secretary general of the German Aerosol Association and board member of the American Association for Aerosol Research. He is on the editorial boards of several journals and research associations and was an advisor to the Health Council of the Netherlands. In 2014, he cofounded the company VSPARTICLE (Delft, the Netherlands), which specializes in equipment for producing nanoparticles and nanoparticulate products as well as contract research in this domain, for which he is working as an advisor. His main area of expertise is nanoparticle and materials technology.
