Sebastian Engelhardt

sebastianI’m Sebastian from Germany, a member of the second cohort of  graduate students studying biomimicry at the University of Akron.  I enrolled in Fall 2013 and my corporate sponsor is Ross Environmental Services.  I’m trained in interdisciplinary research and communication at the interface of biology and engineering. I have a bachelor’s degree in biology (Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany) and a master’s in biomimetics/biomimicry (Carinthia Universtiy of Applied Sciences, Austria).

For my master thesis I worked at the Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering Denkendorf, Germany (ITV Denkendorf). The focus of my thesis was on the optimization of energy efficient textile buildings with transparent heat insulation for solar thermal usage inspired by the polar bear’s fur.  Current projects I am working on are: Finding Novel Approaches of Industrial Water Desalination Inspired by Natural Systems; and Reverse Drug Design of ALK-Targeting Compounds in Neuroblastoma.
