Since 2011 Michael Dornbusch has been a professor for coatings technology at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Krefeld, Germany. His research is focused on corrosion protective coatings and transport processes in coatings. It is a continuation of his eight years working in the coatings industry focused on corrosion protective coatings for the automotive, marine, aircraft and fastener industries in different companies in Germany. In his teaching he foscused on EU legislation for chemicals, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, coating application and processes.
