Prof. Dr. Jörg Worlitschek (* 1970) studied chemical engineering at the University of Erlangen and graduated ‘with honors’ from the Technical University of Berlin in energy and process engineering. He worked at the Institute of Biotechnology in Berlin and in the context of a research fellowship at the University of Pusan ??in South Korea. From 1999 to 2003 he was at the Institute of Process Engineering at ETH Zurich as Assistant and made a PhD in the field of Thermal Process Engineering (Optimization of Batch Crystallization). From 2003 to 2012, he worked at Mettler Toledo in USA and Switzerland. He led areas for Automated reactors & calorimetry (heat of reaction) as well as for laboratory & production software. Since February 2012, Jörg Worlitschek is at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences & Arts, he is leading the research group Thermal Energy Storage and holds lectures in Thermodynamics, Process Engineering and Energy Storage Systems. The focus of his research are thermal energy storage, crystallization processes and heat transfer. Jörg Worlitschek has written numerous articles for scientific conferences and journals.
