The MRS Postdoctoral Awards recognize postdoctoral scholars who show exceptional promise that may include, excellence in scientific research, leadership, advocacy, outreach, or teaching, during their postdoc assignment.

Bert Conings joined, after obtaining his Phd degree, the IMO-IMOMEC Nanostructure Physics group led by Prof. dr. Hans-Gerd Boyen where he specialized in photoelectron spectroscopy. In 2013, he became a postdoctoral fellow of the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO), and he was a scientific visitor in the group of Henry Snaith (University of Oxford) in 2016 for six months. 

Bert his core focus is perovskite photovoltaics, both on the device level and the material level. More generally, his interests include the electro-optical characterization of nanostructured materials for applications in energy and life sciences.
