Ingo Koeper studied chemistry at the University of Dortmund and received his Diploma in 1998. In 1997 he spent six month at the university of Bordeaux, France, for an ERASMUS practical course in physical chemistry. In 2002 he received his PhD from the University of Paris VI for his work on neutron scattering experiments on the interactions between a sugar and a protein in the group of M.-C. Bellissent-Funel at the Laboratoire Léon Brillouin, CEA-Saclay. In 2002 he joined the Materials Science Department at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany. After one year as a post-doc, he became a project leader, leading an independent research team working on biofunctional surfaces, ion channels and single-channel recordings.
In September 2009, he followed a call to become lecturer in the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences at Flinders University.
