Annamaria Petrozza was awarded a Master of Science in Electronic Engineering (emphasis on Devices, design and modelling) at Ecole Supèrieure d’Electricité (Paris, France) in 2003 under the T.I.M.E. (Top Industrial Manager in Europe) program. In 2004 she got a Master degree in Electronic Engineering (emphasis on Optoelectronics) at Politecnico of Milan with a thesis carried out at the Cavendish Laboratory of the University of Cambridge (UK) on the optical characterisation of a class of organic semiconductors with a supramolecular architecture for Organic Light Emitting Diodes. The research work was under the supervision of Prof. C. Cacialli and Prof. C. Silva. In 2008 she received her PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge (UK) with a thesis on the study of optoelectronic processes at organic and hybrid semico nductors interfaces under the supervision of Dr. J.S. Kim and Prof Sir R.H. Friend. From July 2008 to December 2009 she worked as research scientist at the Sharp Laboratories of Europe, Ltd on the development of new market competitive solar cell technologies (Dye Sensitized Solar cells/Colloidal Quantum Dots Sensitized Solar cells). Her main tasks were to establish key needs of PV market, write research proposals to submit to the Sharp Business Group, and design and implement experiments. Since January 2010 she has a Team Leader position at the Center for Nano Science and Technology -IIT@POLIMI. She is in charge of the development of photovoltaic devices and their characterization by time-resolved and cw Photoinduced Absorption Spectroscopy, Time-resolved Photoluminescence and electrical measurements. Her research work mainly aims to shed light on interfacial optoelectronic mechanisms, which are fundamental for the optimization of operational processes, with the goal of improving device efficiency and stability.

Sjoerd Veenstra studied Polymer Chemistry at the University of Groningen, where he graduated in 1997. In 2002 he received his PhD with a thesis titled ‘On the Electronic structure of molecular systems’. Sjoerd stayed at UCSB as intern (1997) and at Cornell as visiting scientist (2004). Since 2002 he works as researcher, and currently as team lead, in the area of hybrid organic / inorganic based photovoltaic devices (HOPV) at the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN). The development of thin film solar cells of ECN, including polymer and perovskite based solar cells, is now carried out within the framework of the Solliance initiative, a regional research alliance of Forschungszentrum Jülich, Holst Centre, imec, TNO, Eindhoven university of Technology, University Hasselt, Delft University of Technology and ECN. Since 2008 Sjoerd is guest lecturer at the University of Groningen.
