Dr. Tobias Keplinger is group leader of the “Functional Wood Materials Characterization Group” at the Institute of Building Materials/Wood Materials Science at ETH Zürich. Before he has worked as PostDoc and completed his PhD with a thesis on versatile strategies for wood cell wall functionalization in 2016 at the same institute. By profession he is a chemist and studied at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. His current research interests are the development of novel hybrid wood based materials, the nano-structural and chemical analysis of wood functionalization processes by Confocal Raman Spectroscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy, and the fabrication of new types of wood based composite materials equipped with excellent mechanical properties, functionality and formability.
