Dr. Dirndorfer studied physics from 2004 to 2010 at the Technical University of Munich. The focus of his study was placed on reactor physics and renewable energies. He conducted his diploma thesis at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) in Garching. The topic of his thesis was the adhesion characteristics of sputtered monolithic two metal layer systems, i.e. uranium-molybdenum on aluminium substrate. He examined the adhesion of the prepared samples with defined tensile test in the control area of the research reactor.

From 2002 to 2004, Dr. Dirndorfer completed prior to his study his vocational training as an industrial clerk at the former ZF Passau GmbH.

From 2010 to 2015 Dr. Dirndorfer was occupied with the thermo-fluid dynamic research project „Condensation Induced Water Hammer“ at the Universität der Bundeswehr München. His occupation included the planning and construction of a new integral test facility, which generates water hammer events caused by a steam-water two-phase flow in a vertical up-fill configuration. He also examined in his research within the framework of his doctorate the capability of the system code ATHLET to simulate and predict this kind of water hammer. Additionally to this research he worked on other hydro-dynamic projects.

Since December 2016, Dr. Dirndorfer works in the field of Intellectual Property for Hofstetter, Schurack & Partner.

He speaks German and English.
