After graduating the Master of Science in Chemistry at the University of Ghent in 2015, Wouter Van Gompel received an FWO-SB doctoral fellowship and started in the HyMaD group of Prof. dr. Dirk Vanderzande at Hasselt University to study hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites from a material chemistry point of view. After defending his PhD entitled “Exploring the versatility of organic-inorganic hybrids from 3D to 0D: Structure, stability and optical properties” in October 2019, he started working as a postdoctoral researcher in the HyMaD group where he is currently focusing on the design, synthesis and characterization of 2D layered hybrid perovskites containing functional organic cations.
