Dr. Tillmann studied physics at the University of Duisburg and at Ruhr-University in Bochum, where he specialised in geophysics. He completed his diploma degree 1997 with his thesis on the “Extraction of dispersion curves from time-frequency analysis by neuronal networks”.

He completed his doctorate in 2001 at the Institute of Geology, Mineralogy and Geophysics at Ruhr-University in Bochum, with a thesis on a method for joint inversion of geoelectric and seismic data.

From 2002 to 2006, Dr. Tillmann carried out postdoctoral work at the Research Centre Jülich, where he developed modelling, inversion methods, and measurement equipment for 3D Magneto-Electrical Resistivity Tomography for cylindrical samples. Furthermore, he initiated and led a German-Hungarian research project dealing with the characterisation of aquifers by cone penetration tests in combination with nuclear measuring methods.

Dr. Tillmann has been with Müller-Boré since 2007. He became a German Patent Attorney in 2010 and a European Patent Attorney in 2013.


Dr. Tillmann specializes in physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, and civil engineering.
