Short CV

Kamal Asadi received his PhD degree in solid-state physics from University of Groningen, the Netherlands. His PhD research work and patents contributed to the demonstration of the first organic ferroelectric memory array and its logic table. Following a Post-Doc period, he joined Royal Philips Electronics N.V. as a research scientist. His work at Philips was focused on the investigation of metal-oxides, ferroelectrics and graphene for opto-electronic applications. In 2013 he moved to Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research as a senior scientist. In 2014 he was awarded the Sofja Kovalevskaja Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for his project on organic multi-ferroics. His research at the moment is focused on electronic devices based on organic/inorganic hybrids. He is co-author of numerous papers and holder of eight patents.
