Alex Vieira Pedroso obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry in Brazil at the State University of Ponta Grossa (UEPG) in 2012, with a thesis on the evaluation of composite formation of conductive polymers and metal oxides and the influence on the efficiency of photovoltaic devices. After working as a research chemist in the R&D laboratories of the company Águia Química, he returned to UEPG and obtained his Master's degree in Applied Chemistry in 2015 with a project on the synthesis and characterization of thermosetting polymers with glycerol waste from biodiesel production. Currently, he is working on a PhD entitled ‘Synthesis and characterization of organic semiconductors for application in solar cells’ at the same university in Brazil, with part of the project being conducted at Hasselt University in the DSOS group.
