Current MSCA Fellows at TUM

Dr. Franziska Emmerling

TUM Chair: Chair for Research and Science Management, Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus

TUM Department: TUM School of Management

Project: Assessing positive and destructive leadership on multiple dimensions: How to better understand and improve the behaviour of the people who lead us (LEADERPROFILE)

Academic Career and Research Areas

Dr. Emmerling completed her PhD in cognitive neuroscience at Maastricht University and holds a degree in systemic coaching (DGPS). She completed a postdoc in the Netherlands and subsequently held a Nils Stensen Fellowship at Oxford University, UK. She declined a three-year British Academy Post-doctoral Fellowship to join the Chair for Research and Science Management at TUM.

Dr. Emmerling currently works on unravelling the multi-facetted mechanisms underlying destructive leadership on behavioural, cognitive, and biological level. Her past research focuses on the behavioural and neural enhancement of cognitive control, response inhibition, and impulse control. Particularly, she investigated how inhibitory processing is mirrored in neural networks (employing brain imaging and non-invasive brain stimulation), how these networks can be modulated by multi-level interventions, and how such modulations are linked to impulsive and aggressive behaviour and other forms of self-control failure.

Dr. Alex Henning

TUM Chair: Professorship on Experimental Semiconductor Physics, Prof. Ian D. Sharp

TUM Department: Walter Schottky Institute, Physics Department

Project: Functional Electrical Contacts to Two-Dimensional Materials with Tunable Interfacial Oxides, ProTOC

Academic Career and Research Areas

Dr. Henning’s research concerns the development of novel materials for more energy-efficient nanoelectronics devices. During his Ph.D. at Tel Aviv University in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Dr. Henning developed a novel transistor for sensing applications employing silicon-on-insulator technology in collaboration with a semiconductor foundry (TowerJazz). He was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for his research in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Northwestern University where he established novel atomic layer deposition (ALD) processes for the dielectric integration of 2D materials.

Currently, Dr. Henning is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technical University of Munich where his research focuses on developing functional coatings and carrier-selective contacts to 2D materials using plasma-enhanced ALD.

About MSCA-Individual Fellowships

The goal of the Individual Fellowships (IF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility.

Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.

Support is foreseen for individual, trans-national fellowships awarded to the best or most promising researchers of any nationality, for employment in EU Member States or Associated Countries. It is based on an application made jointly by the researcher and the beneficiary in the academic or non-academic sectors. Only one proposal per individual researcher will be evaluated.

For more information, please consult the websites of the European Commission or the European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi).
