Biography

Biography

P.A. Bobbert studied Physics in Leiden from 1978-1984. He obtained his Bachelor?s in Physics with minor in Astrophysics in 1981 and his Master?s in Theoretical Physics with minor in Mathematics in 1984. He obtained his PhD in 1988 (cum laude) at the Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics in Leiden on the theory of light reflection by rough surfaces, under guidance of Prof. Dick Bedeaux and Dr. Jan Vlieger. He ended this work with a short Postdoc period of three months at Utrecht University, where he performed experiments related to his PhD subject. In 1989 he obtained a grant from the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences for a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Delft University, where he worked on quantum phase transitions in arrays of Josephson junctions in the group of Prof. Gerd Schon until 1991. This work was concluded by a stay as guest scientist in the Superconductivity group of Prof. Michael Tinkham at Harvard University in the summer of 1991. In 1991 he became Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University in the Solid-State Theory group of Prof. Wim van Haeringen and started working on ab-initio electronic-structure methods. After a few years he made a switch to the theory of organic electronics. In 2001 he became Associate Professor in Theory of Functional Materials. In 2003 he was guest scientist for half a year in the Optoelectronics group of Prof. Richard Friend in Cambridge. He is presently a member of the group Theory of Polymers and Soft Matter (TPS) at Eindhoven University. His present research interests are 1) modeling of Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs), 2) modeling of Organic Field-Effect Transistors (OFETs), 3) charge transport in organic crystals, 4) opto-electronics of supra-molecular aggregates, and 5) spin dynamics in organic semiconductors.
