Matthias Tamm was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1967 and studied chemistry at the Technische Universität Berlin, where he received his PhD in 1992 under the supervision of F. Ekkehardt Hahn. After spending one year as a Visiting Research Scientist at DuPont Central Research and Development, DE, USA with Anthony J. Arduengo, III, he returned to Germany in 1994 to complete his Habilitation in Berlin and Münster. Tamm was appointed to Privatdozent at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in 1999 and held a temporary professorship at the Technische Universität München from 2002 to 2005. He then moved to the Technische Universität Braunschweig in 2005 to become Full Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. At this institution, he served as Dean of Studies (2009–2011) and as Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences (2015–2017) and is currently acting as head of the Institute of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry and as an elected member of the Senate of TU Braunschweig. He received honorary doctorates from the University Politehnica of Bucharest and from the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University Iași and in 2016 the Gheorghe Spacu Medal of the Romanian Chemical Society. His research interests lie in the areas of preparative organometallic chemistry and coordination chemistry with an emphasis on the development of novel, unusual ligand systems and on the application of their transition metal complexes in homogeneous catalysis, organic synthesis and materials science.
