Felix Ziegler studied Mechanical Engineering at Technische Universität München, Germany. After having received his Diploma he moved to the faculty of physics where he continued his studies under the auspices of the late Prof. Georg Alefeld. There, in 1991, he got his Doctor’s degree for a dissertation about the combination of compression and absorption cooling processes.
Felix Ziegler stayed at the Technische Universität München as senior researcher and lecturer. In 1995 he moved to the Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern). He was head of the division for „Energy conversion and storage“ for six years. In 2001 Felix Ziegler was appointed full professor at the Institute for Energy Engineering of Technische Universität Berlin.
The main research interest of Felix Ziegler is sorption cooling and heat transformation devices, energy storage, heat and mass transfer, and energy systems engineering.
