Dr. Wriedt graduated with a Master Degree in Chemistry from the University of Kiel in Germany in 2008 and received in 2010 a Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Näther in Kiel, working in the field of molecular magnetism and thermochemistry. Following a 2.5 year postdoctoral visit at Texas A&M University in Prof. Dr. Zhou’s group his research was focused on metal-organic frameworks with tunable physical properties. He received several awards and fellowships including a postdoctoral fellowship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) as well as a Ph.D. fellowship of the German Chemical Industry Fund (FCI) and the German National Academic Foundation. He is author of 54 research papers published in peer-reviewed international journals. Since 2013 he conducts his own independent research as Assistant Professor at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. His research activities are focused at developing new strategies for the design and synthesis of functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of the structure-property relationship of materials.
Dr. Wriedt's research activities are mainly focused at developing new strategies for the design and synthesis of functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of the structure-property relationship of materials.
His group at CU works towards the development and characterization of new metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) whose applications address some of our society's most challenging needs, such as:
- Clean Energy Alternatives through the synthesis of tailored MOFs which can store an adequate amount of H2 or CH4 at moderate temperatures and pressures.
- Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions through the synthesis of tailored MOFs which can capture large amounts of CO2 from flue gas streams.
- Stimuli-Responsive Magnetic Materials through the synthesis of tailored MOFs which can be used for sensing applications
