Jérôme Cornil received a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Mons-Hainaut (Belgium) in 1996 under the supervision of Jean-Luc Brédas. After postdoctoral stays at the University of California at Santa Barbara (with A.J. Heeger) and at MIT Boston (with R.S. Silbey), he became a senior researcher of the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS) in 2000. His research interests mostly deal with the design of organic semiconductors for organic-based opto-electronic devices and molecular-based devices and the understanding of the key electronic processes in the bulk of organic layers and at interfaces in such devices. He is (co)author of over 225 chapter books and papers in international peer-reviewed journals.
