InfoTom, About

Who is InfoTom?





My full name is Thomas Waßmer (transcription of the German "sharp s": Wassmer). I was working in Mainz, Germany with the Chemistry Education Network as a scientific writer, multimedia developer and web designer. After this government funded project was terminated, I went to study again (in Mannheim, Germany) to become a high school science teacher at the Steiner / Waldorf - Schools. After concluding my studies I moved to Ann Arbor, MI, USA where I taught biology, earth science and chemistry at the Rudolf Steiner High School of Ann Arbor. Since Fall 2010, I am assistant professor of biology at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan..

I earned my Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Konstanz working on the hibernation of European hamsters and my M.Sc. from the University of Freiburg studying dung beetle ecology. For more information on my background, please refer to my resume.
