Personal profile

Scientific Career

Professor Einsiedl‘s (b. 1968) research and teaching interests focus on the groundwater ecosystem. Groundwater represents an important drinking water resource in Germany. As a hydrogeologist and biogeochemist, Professor Einsiedl investigates hydraulic issues and new biogeochemical processes in shallow and deep groundwater systems. In his research stable isotope technique represents a key tool. The goal of his scientific work is to gain a holistic understanding of the groundwater ecosystem for future sustainable use of the drinking water resources, both in terms of quality and quantity.

Professor Einsiedl spent his early academic career in Munich, completing his first degree (1991-1996, Diploma) and his PhD in hydrogeology at LMU Munich (1996-2000). Postdoctoral studies first took him to the Institute of Hydrology at Helmholtz Center Munich (2000-2003) and subsequently as a research group leader to the Institute of Groundwater Ecology (2003-2008), a unit within the research center. He then moved to the National University of Ireland until his appointment as an associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark in Copenhagen (2009-2012). In 2010 he completed his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) at the University of Bayreuth and joined TUM as a full professor for hydrogeology in the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy in 2012.
