Sander Smeets obtained his Bachelor degree in Chemistry at Hasselt University in 2017, with a dissertation on the morphology control in organic photovoltaics under the supervision of Prof. Wouter Maes. Subsequently, he received his Master of Science in Chemistry at Ghent University in 2019. During his thesis, which was performed with the Supramolecular Chemistry group of Prof. Richard Hoogenboom, he optimized a post-polymerization functionalization to synthesize partly functionalized poly(2-oxazoline)s for molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). Currently, he is performing his PhD in the DSOS group on the elucidation of the importance of homocoupled defects in organic semiconductors.
