Andreas T. Güntner (1987) is a PhD student at the group of Prof. Pratsinis at ETH Zürich. He studied Mechanical Engineering at ETH and received BSc and MSc degrees in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
His research focuses on the development of portable gas sensors for breath analysis. This includes primarily the nanoscale engineering (morphology, crystal phase, composition) of chemoresistive materials exhibiting unprecedented high sensitivity and selectivity to target breath tracers. At the same time, such sensors are integrated into compact E-noses. Currently, gas sensors are developed to detect and monitor lung cancer, kidney failure and diabetes.
Motivated students for BSc & MSc projects or as lab assistants are always welcome.
