Nils Ehringhausen studied Geosciences at the Ruhr-University Bochum and finished with a M.Sc. degree in applied geology.
In his Master's thesis, he dealt with the evaluation of the comparability for different destructive and non-destructive tests to estimate the elastic constants of cement. His thesis was used as the foundation for a scientific paper published in the course of EUROCK 2017.
In September 2017 he joined Itasca Consultants GmbH in Gelsenkirchen, first as an intern and as full-time project engineer since January 2018.
