Dr.Michael Witting studied Applied Chemistry with a functional direction into biochemistry at the Georg-Simon-Ohm University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg. In 2009 he joined the Research Unit Analytical BioGeoChemistry at the Helmholtz Zentrum München for his PhD studies. In 2013 he obtained his PhD from the Technical University of Munich. At the moment he is performing his habilitation at the Chair of Analytical Food Chemistry at the Technical University of Munich. His current research interests are the definition of the metabolome and lipidome of the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans and the understanding of the lipid metabolism regulation on lipid species level. Furthermore, he is interested in metabolite identification workflows in LC-MS-based non-targeted metabolomics and in the use of orthogonal information such as retention time, retention indices and ion mobility and CCS information for an improved metabolite identification.
