Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)

Wouter Van Gompel received his master in chemistry at Ghent University in 2015 and his PhD in chemistry at Hasselt University in 2019 for the design, synthesis and characterization of hybrid perovskites with inorganic frameworks spanning the whole range of structural dimensionalities, from 3D to 0D, towards their use in optoelectronics. He was awarded a personal FWO-SB PhD grant by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) to carry out this research.

After his PhD, he continued to expand his research on hybrid perovskite at UHasselt, funded as a postdoctoral researcher on an FWO-SBO project with partners from imec, UHasselt, UGent, KULeuven, and UAntwerpen. In 2022, he was granted a BOF postdoctoral mandate at UHasselt. During his postdoc, he undertook research stays in Switzerland (EPFL, Prof. M.K. Nazeeruddin) and the UK (University of Cambridge, Prof. Sam Stranks). In 2023, he was appointed as Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) at UHasselt. Since that time, he is the head of the Hybrid Materials Design (HyMaD) expertise group, which focusses on the design and synthesis of hybrid materials for optoelectronic applications.
