Since April 2019 Stephanie Wegmann is a researcher at the Institute of Polymer Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW). There she is responsible for acquisition, project management and supervising students. Within the activities of Capacity Area A3 of SCCER Mobility, her research focusses on life cycle assessment of new processes to produce lightweight composite materials for automotive applications. Before she joined FHNW and SCCER Mobility, she worked as a development engineer at Degradable Solutions AG in Schlieren for three years. In the field of biomedical engineering, she worked on developing new processes for bone replacement materials. She obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering at ETH Zurich. When asked how mobility will change in the next 10 years, she thinks that “the entire mobility system will again increase its speed: everything will be interconnected and make our lives even faster-paced. In the midst of this, we have to find new ways to deal with the resources we have without destroying the entire environmental system.”
