Alessandro Caiazzo

Master Student


I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Naples “Federico II” (Italy). During my graduation project, I studied supported ionic liquids for carbon capture applications. Most specifically, I worked with a lab-scale plant to optimize a CO2 capture process. After that, I enrolled at the TU Eindhoven and moved to The Netherlands. Now I am a second-year master’s student in Chemical Engineering (Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry track).


During my first year, I performed a short research project in the Inorganic Chemistry and Materials group; I studied photoelectrocatalytic water splitting. Starting from August 2018, I have been working in the M2S research group under supervision of René Janssen. My project is about 2D/3D hybrid perovskite solar cells. I am researching a simple and efficient way to improve perovskite solar cells performances and stability by creating a multidimensional perovskite layer.
