Michael Verhage



In 2017 I obtained my BSc degree in Applied Physics from the Eindhoven University of Technology. The final bachelor project was in the group photonics and semiconductor nanophysics (PSN) under supervision of prof.dr.ir. Andrea Fiore where we explored all optical electric field sensing capabilities of Nano-opto-mechanical-sensors. In 2019 I obtained my MSc degree in Applied Physics Bio-Nanotechnology under supervision of prof.dr.ir. Gerwin Gelinck of the M2N group. I performed the master graduation project in the Holst Centre TNO where we studied near-infrared sensing of cavity based organic photodetectors.

In August 2019 I started my PhD studies under supervision of prof.dr.ir Kees Flipse of the M2N group. The PhD project is shared with the Dutch Institute For Fundamental Energy Research (DIFFER) under supervision of dr. Anja Bieberle-Hütter. My project is focused on exploring magnetism on the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) of water (photo)electro catalysis for the production of hydrogen and oxygen gas. By understanding fundamental principles, we aim to create highly efficient catalytic materials.
