Marius received his Bachelors degree from Bielefeld University in 2007. During his Bachelors thesis he studied the recrystallization process of ice in sucrose solution under the supervision of Professor Thomas Koop. On the way to the following Masters degree, financial support of a DAAD scholarship allowed Marius to stop in the spectroscopy group of Professor Prashant Kamat at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana/USA in 2008. There he investigated the photodegradation of polythiophene-based polymers. Fascinated by laser spectroscopy, he received his Masters degree in the groups of Professor Adelheid Godt and PD Tilman Kottke in 2010 for the synthesis and time-resolved spectroscopy of artifical reaction centers used to introduce the so-called photo-CIDNP effect. In continuation he moved to Geneva to join the ultrafast photochemistry group of Professor Eric Vauthey where he received his Ph.D. in 2015 for the research on bimolecular photoinduced electron transfer in liquid solution. Marius joined the Scholes group in April 2015.
