Frank Dissinger was born in Speyer. He did his diploma in chemistry at the Johannes-Gutenberg University, Mainz including a research project at the University of Aberdeen (Scotland, UK) under supervision of Prof. Jörg Feldmann. He finished his PhD in the group of Prof. Siegfried R. Waldvogel in January 2020, researching semiconductor nanowire optoelectronics and carbon nanodots as part of the DFG research unit FOR1616. In January 2021, he joined the Delius group as academic associate for safety, teaching and future NMR expert. When not fighting bureaucracy or dealing with new spectrometers, he is dedicated for progress as a board member of the GDCh, hiking/skiing or expanding his expertise as a scotch whisky enthusiast.
