Alessandro Caiazzo

PhD student


After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Naples “Federico II” (Italy), Alessandro moved to The Netherlands to study for a MSc in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at TU Eindhoven. During his education, he first worked on a short research project about photoelectrocatalytic water splitting in the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis group. Then, he completed a research project about multidimensional perovskite solar cells under supervision of prof. René Janssen in the M2N group. His research focused on the study of 2D/3D heterostructures and quasi-2D perovskites.

Before completing his Master’s, Alessandro joined ASML for an internship, where he studied the surface chemistry of EUV mirrors under plasma conditions. After that, he joined the M2N group as a PhD candidate. His research currently aims to develop lower dimensional perovskites for highly efficient and stable solar cells.
