Former Students and Postdocs

Patrick TomHon

Patrick graduated from the University of Richmond with a B.S. in chemistry and a B.A. in international studies, concentrating in international economics.  He started work with the Theis lab in fall 2018 and is interested in development of spin dynamics and engineering methodologies for the application of SABRE parahydrogen-based hyperpolarization in MRI and zero-field NMR systems.

Dr. rer. nat. Sören Lehmkuhl, now junior group leader at the Karlsuhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Dr. Lehmkuhl received his PhD from RWTH Aachen University working on unconventional NMR experiments and hyperpolarization technology. He joined the Theis lab in 2019 and develops parahydrogen based NMR technologies and their applications, ranging from miniaturized NMR to in vivo  hyperpolarized MRI. His new endevours are focused on the parahydrogen enhanced RASER.
