Andreas Walther graduated from Bayreuth University in Germany in 2008 with a Ph.D. on Janus particles and pursued postdoctoral studies with a focus on biomimetic hybrid materials at Aalto University in Helsinki. After establishing his independent research group at the DWI – Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials in Aachen in 2011, he was appointed to a full professor at the Institute for Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Freiburg. His research interests concentrate on developing and understanding hierarchical self-assembly concepts inside and outside equilibrium, and on using them to create Active, Adaptive and Autonomous Bioinspired Material Systems. He has published ca. 160 papers (h-index 55) and has recently been awarded the Bayer Early Excellence in Science Award (for Materials), the Reimund Stadler Young Investigator Award of the German Chemical Society, a BMBF NanoMatFutur Research Group, an ERC Starting Grant, as well as the Hanwha-Total IUPAC Young Scientist Award awarded at the biannual IUPAC World Polymer Congress 2018. He is a fellow of both the Freiburg (FRIAS) as well as the Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Studies.
