Personal profile

Personal profile


I have developed and am coordinating a research line focused at understanding structure-functionality relations in materials with application in solar energy conversion. The research is in particular focused at the control of photoinduced processes and their dynamics in photocatalytic and photovoltaic materials, by tuning the static or dynamic nanostructure of the complex. To this end, I employ several complementary ultrafast spectroscopic methods to visualize light-induced processes in real-time, such as femtosecond transient absorption, time-resolved photoluminescence, IR, Raman and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. To support a multidisciplinary approach, I have developed an (inter)national collaboration network with synthetic chemists, theoreticians and chemical physicists.



PhD in Physical Chemistry, Delft University of Technology, 2008. 

MSc in Chemical Engineering, Delft University of Technology, 2004.



  • TOP grant (2018) from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) of 820 k€, offering outstanding researchers the opportunity to strengthen or renew challenging and innovative lines of research, in collaboration with De Groot from Leiden and Jansen from Groningen. The project focuses on the effect of vibronic coupling in supramolecular systems on long-range exciton transfer.
