Prof. dr. ir. Martijn Kemerink
Martijn Kemerink obtained his PhD from the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1998 on Many-Body Effects in III/V Semiconductors. As a research fellow of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences he switched topics to Scanning Probe Microscopy on both inorganic and organic semiconductors. Between 2003 and 2013 he worked as assistant and later associate professor in the group Molecular Materials and Nanosystems at the TU/e. During that period he developed a number of research directions in which typically experiments and numerical modeling are combined. Between 2014 and 2019 he was full professor in Applied Physics at Linköping University in Sweden, leading the group Complex Materials and Devices. At the end of 2019 he was appointed full professor in Experimental Physics at the Centre for Advanced Materials at the University of Heidelberg. His current research interests focus on charge and energy transport in disordered, mostly organic semiconductors and on the physics of devices based on those. In addition, he works on novel organic ferro- and piezoelectric materials for amongst others memory applications.
