KAAT VALKENEERS

Kaat Valkeneers obtained her Bachelor degree in Chemistry from Hasselt University in 2017 after finishing a Bachelor thesis on the synthesis of novel ladder-type donor units for organic electronics in the group of Prof. Wouter Maes. For her Master studies, she went to KU Leuven and finished in 2019 with a dissertation in the group of Prof. Wim Dehaen on a novel metal-free synthesis of 4-formyl-1,2,3-triazoles and their use in the preparation of triazole-functionalized dyes. Currently, she is performing her PhD in Chemistry in the DSOS group led by Prof. Wouter Maes. Her research focuses on the optimization of donor and acceptor materials for truly transparent organic photovoltaics.
