OMAR BECKERS

Omar Beckers received his bachelor in Chemistry at Hasselt University in 2015, after doing a bachelor thesis on the synthesis and optimization of ionic phosphodiester based hydrogels under the supervision of Prof. W. Maes and Prof. W. Guedens. In 2017, he obtained his master’s degree in Chemistry at the KU Leuven. In his master thesis, he studied the use of poly(arylene oxindole)s as supports for NiXantphos under the supervision of Prof. M. Smet. In October 2017, he started a PhD in the DSOS group, in which he studies the influence of homocoupling defects on organic photovoltaics and photodetectors and the implementation of flow chemistry for the production of defect-free organic semiconductors.
