My name is Sebastian Reineke. Since June 2016, I am Professor for Organic Semiconductors at the Institute of Applied Physics and Dresden Integrated Center for Applied Physics and Photonic Materials (IAPP) of the Technische Universität Dresden. Prior to this position, I was a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Marc Baldos group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, funded through a research scholarship of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). I am a physicist by training and, throughout my career, my research has crossed with different disciplines like electrical engineering, material science, and organic chemistry. I am working on the utilization of organic materials, quantum dots, and other soft matter for energy harvesting and conversion technologies. The research spans from the fundamental understanding of the functional building blocks of these systems to the full integration of functional materials into novel device architectures. In other words, my work here tries to bridge between photochemistry/-physics and electrical engineering.

Prior, during my PhD, I have extensively worked on the detailed understanding and improvement of organic light-emitting diodes, especially for use as next generation white light sources.
