Undergraduate Student

In 2016, I received my Bsc degree in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, from Eindhoven University of Technology, with the predicate Cum Laude. My bachelor thesis involved the fabrication, using CVD, of a FeS2/MoS2 heterojunction for water splitting under solar irradiation and was supervised by dr. rer. nat. J.P. Hofmann. Afterwards, I started my Msc degree Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, sub-track Molecular Systems and Materials Science.

Currently, I am doing my master thesis in the group of Rene Janssen on “Controlling the redox states of PEDOT:PSS for neuromorphic computing”. The project is aimed towards understanding the dedoping mechanism of PEDOT:PSS in order to improve device fabrication.
