Organizing Committee

Dr. Vincent M. Le Corre

Vincent completed his PhD in the group of Prof. L. Jan Anton Koster at the University of Groningen (NL). During this time, he used simulation techniques to study the physics of organic & perovskite solar cells. After completing his PhD he moved on to Prof. Dieter Neher’s group at the University of Potsdam (DE) and used transient electrical characterization techniques to study the influence of ions in perovskite solar cells.
Currently he is a postdoc in the group of Prof. Christoph Brabec at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (DE) and works on combining machine learning and simulation techniques to automate the analysis high-throughput experimentation for solar cells.

Dr. Simon Kahmann

Simon is leading the spectroscopy subgroup of the Stranks Lab at the University of Cambridge. His work focuses on novel materials for optoelectronics, including organic semiconductors, colloidal quantum dots, and metal halide perovskites. Simon obtained a double doctorate in Materials Science/Materials Physics from the University of Groningen and the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg under the supervision of Maria A. Loi and Christoph J. Brabec.
Privately, Simon enjoys reading, running, and the occasional game of chess.


Dr. Loreta Muscarella

After obtaining a master’s degree in physical chemistry from La Sapienza University of Rome (2017), Loreta joined the group of prof. dr. Bruno Ehrler at AMOLF (2018), where she investigated the effects of strain and structural modifications on the optoelectronic properties of halide perovskites. During her PhD research, she established several national collaborations within the Netherlands and international collaborations (Europe and USA) expanding her knowledge on perovskite-based materials and spectroscopy. After obtaining the PhD (2022), she joined the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis at Utrecht University led by prof. dr. ir Bert Weckhuysen. Here, she works as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Dr. Eline Hutter to design novel functional materials that combine the excellent optoelectronic properties of double halide perovskites with organic molecules for applications in catalysis and photocatalysis.
