VITA

Achim graduated in general physics at the University of Bayreuth in 1996 with emphasis on optical analysis of non-linear pattern formation in liquid crystals layers. He seized the opportunity of spending two years of his physics studies in France, at the University of Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes, and at the CNRS Institute for Non-linear Studies in Sophia Antipolis near Nice.

Achim received a PhD of the University of Würzburg, in 2001, for his fundamental research in the field of femtochemistry, an at that time young research discipline dedicated to time-resolving and controlling chemical reactions by ultra-short, femtosecond laser pulses, and collaborated i. a. with one of the founders of this discipline, Nobel prize laureate Ahmed Zewail.

Achim joined KSNH, KLUNKER IP’s predecessor firm, after he became a patent attorney in 2006. He was appointed partner of KSNH in 2008 and co-founded KLUNKER IP in 2017.

Achim is father of two sons and daughters and enjoys beside family life sport activities such as mountain biking, snowboarding, rowing and motor biking and targets to renew his former gliding pilot activities.
