For Research. For Berlin.

Andreas Riedo

With Swiss physicist Andreas Riedo the Department of Physics of Freie Universität Berlin has received superior reinforcement in search of life outside Earth. After earning his doctoral degree summa cum laude in the field of “Space Research and Planetary Sciences“ at the University of Bern, Switzerland, Riedo is now working on implementing a novel mass spectrometry technology. Doing so, his research is laying groundwork for the analysis of specific biomarkers in a planetary simulation chamber. Strong research focus is set on nature and stability of certain organic molecules and potential biosignatures that indicate the existence of life outside this planet.
