Jens Soentgen, born in 1967, leads the environmental research department at the University of Augsburg. His various research projects investigate coarse, fine and – most recently – ultrafine dust. The chemist and philosopher has also devoted himself to the topic of house lint. Since then, the subject has continued to follow and fascinate him and, since Soentgen realises that resistance is futile, he learned to love dust.
