Frank Tietz obtained his PhD in solid state chemistry at the University of Hanover, Germany, in 1992. After a post-doc stay at the University of Trento, Italy, granted by the Alexander-von-Humboldt foundation, he joined Forschungszentrum Jülich in 1995. Today he is leading senior scientist and team leader for materials development of functional ceramics in electrochemical systems. Initially working on high-temperature materials for SOFC and SOEC development, his current work focuses on new electroceramic materials for different types of batteries. He acted as international referee for SOFC-related research projects in New Zealand, Great Britain and Canada. From 2009 to 2013 he was member of the advisory board of the SOFC Canada Strategic Research Network on behalf of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He has published more than 150 papers in refereed journals, more than 120 contributions in conference proceedings and 30 patents or patent applications.
