Research Interests

My research group investigates novel functional molecules and high-performance organic electronic materials on the basis of organic chemistry and using tools from organic synthesis, supramolecular chemistry and surface chemistry. The recent focus of our research includes organic semiconductor materials and devices, and novel non-planar π-molecules.
