Dr Andrej Stranz received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering
from the Braunschweig University of Technology, Germany in 2013. From 2006 to 2014, he worked as a scientific Assistant with
Institute of Semiconductor Technology and Energy Research Centre in Germany. Before he started with CNM, he gained industrial experience at Peiker acustic GmbH & Co. KG, Germany.

From 2016, Andrej Stranz is joining the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona with the thermoelectric group
as MSCA-Fellow in the framework of the P-Sphere project.

Andrej Stranz's research is focused on investigation of thermoelectric properties of nanostructured silicon. He is also interested in energy harvesting topics and Micro, -Nanoengineering.

Besides thermoelectrics, he investigated a novel joining technic based on silver powder for high temperatures and nanoparticles mass detection using vibrating micro sensors.
