From “intelligent products” to health system research

Junior Professor Dr. Nicola Bilstein (36) has held the junior professorship for business administration, in particular management of intelligent products, at the Faculty of Economics since November 2018. Her research deals, among other things, with the involvement of customers in the creation of (digital) services, research into factors of user acceptance and questions about complaint and recovery management. She completed her Bachelor's and Master's degree in International Business Studies at the University of Paderborn. After a stay as a visiting scholar at the OSU Fisher College of Business (USA), she completed her doctorate in 2012 at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Before she came to Bielefeld, Nicola Bilstein did research in the DFG-funded project "Effects of coproduction by customers in reactive and proactive service recovery" at the KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt.

Junior Professor Dr. Christoph Dockweiler (37) has been Professor of Electronic Public Health and Head of the newly founded Center for ePublic Health Research at the Faculty of Health Sciences since November 2018. His research focus is on supply and implementation research of information and communication technologies in health care. The focus of his research work is particularly on questions of the acceptance of digital health technologies, the needs and needs-based technology and supply design as well as the interrelationships of social, digital and health inequalities in society. Christoph Dockweiler studied health sciences at Bielefeld University and received his doctorate there in 2015. He then worked as a research assistant and lecturer in the field of "Telemedicine and eHealth".

Professor Dr. Dmitry Turchinovich (42) has been Professor of Experimental Physics since December 2018. In his research he deals with ultra-short-term dynamics of charge carriers, lattices and spins in various material systems. He mainly uses terahertz spectroscopy for analysis. Turchinovich studied physics and electrical engineering at St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University (Russia) and the Ioffe Institute (Russia). After completing his doctorate in 2004 at the University of Freiburg, he conducted research at various European universities: 2004 to 2006 at the University of Utrecht (Netherlands) and then until 2012 at the Technical University of Denmark as an Associate Professor. In 2012 Dmitry Turchinovich took over the leadership of a research group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz. From 2015 to 2016 he was visiting professor at the Institute for Laser Engineering at the University of Osaka (Japan) and from 2017 to 2018 he was professor for experimental physics at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Junior Professor Dr. After her parental leave, Lunana Caron (37) started her work in the materials research group for information technology with a focus on the synchrotron (special particle accelerator) at the Faculty of Physics. She is the head of a junior research group at the Faculty of Physics and at the Helmholtz Center Berlin for the development and characterization of energy materials with synchrotron radiation. Her research aims to understand the coupling between the degrees of freedom of magnetism and the crystal lattice. The aim is to develop novel functional magnetic materials. Luana Caron completed her Ph.D in Physics in 2007 from the State University of Campinas (Brazil). She then worked as a postdoc at Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) and Uppsala University (Sweden). Most recently, she conducted research at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, where she led her own research group on magnetocalorics.

Professor Dr. Annette Malsch (52) has been researching and teaching since January 2019 as a professor of health sciences with a focus on environmental hygiene and environmental toxicology at the Faculty of Health Sciences. In the field of Environmental Health Sciences, she deals with the recording of environmental pollution and environmental resources in order to formulate preventive courses of action. In addition, she works on the further development of theoretical concepts for environmental hygiene and on the integration of an environmental psychological research field as a cross-sectional discipline in environmental health research. Annette Malsch studied biology at the Goethe University in Frankfurt. She did her doctorate in 2002 in the field of basic ethoecological research at the Universities of Frankfurt, Würzburg and Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia). Subsequently, she was involved in the development of working group 7 Environment & Health as a research assistant in the health sciences at Bielefeld University until 2006. Most recently, she worked for almost five years as management and advisory member of the medical ethics committee of the medicine department at the Goethe University in Frankfurt.

Junior Professor Dr. Melanie Böckmann (36) has been working as a professor for “Global Sustainable Environmental Health Sciences” in the Environment and Health working group of the Faculty of Health Sciences since March 1st. Her research interests lie in the identification of environmental factors for health and health-promoting behavior as well as implementation research.
She received her doctorate in 2015 from the University of Bremen after a research stay in Japan on climate change and health, with a focus on the evaluation of adaptation measures and their effects on social justice. From 2016 to 2019 Melanie Böckmann worked in addiction research at the Institute for General Medicine at the University Hospital Düsseldorf. There she supervised the process evaluation for an EU Horizon2020-funded study on smoking cessation among tuberculosis patients in Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. Melanie Böckmann is associated with the University of York (Great Britain) as a visiting scholar.

Professor Dr. Kayvan Bozorgmehr (37) was appointed to Bielefeld University on March 1 and has since headed the Population Medicine and Health Services Research group at the Faculty of Health Sciences. His research focuses on social determinants of health and globalization, migration and flight, health system research, as well as epidemiological questions on care needs, access and outcomes. Kayvan Bozorgmehr completed her studies in human medicine in Frankfurt am Main and received her doctorate at the Institute for Social Medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics at the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. He received a Master of Science degree in Public Health from the International School of Public Health at Umeå University (Sweden). Most recently, he headed the working group “Social Determinants, Equity & Migration” at Heidelberg University Hospital and a BMBF junior research group in health services research (RESPOND).

Professor Dr. Udo Hagedorn (45) has been Professor of Social Sciences and its Didactics at the Faculty of Sociology since March. The core of the research is dealing with different demands from society, business and private life in social science lessons and the design of an integrative social science education. Hagedorn studied German and social sciences (teaching degree), German studies, economics and education (M.A.) at the University of Siegen, where he received his doctorate in professional and business education in 2008. After positions at the University of Cologne, at the Schwäbisch Gmünd University of Education and as a junior professor for empirical teaching and learning research in the context of professional organizational and quality development at the Leibniz University of Hanover, he represented professorships for professional education in Osnabrück and for career orientation in inclusive contexts in Hanover.
