My passions are material science research, education and art. Currently, my work focusses on optoelectronic materials design and discovery by combinatorial synthesis, and functional characterization. Our novel optoelectronic materials find application in energy efficient devices like solar cells, light emitting diodes and transparent electronics.
Before coming to UTwente, I have been team leader for the transparent electrodes development at the Photovoltaics and Thin-Film Electronics Laboratory (PVLab) of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. I obtained my Ph.D. in Physics from Leiden University, The Netherlands in 2012, working on resistive switching memories.
