Master Student


Mike Pols received his Bachelor’s degrees in Applied Physics and Chemical Engineering in 2018 from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The Bachelor’s thesis was focused on excitonic processes in phosphorescent OLEDs.

He is currently pursuing his Master’s degrees in Applied Physics and Chemical Engineering at TU/e. From August 2019 to March 2020, he worked as a student assistant at our group, focusing on metal halide perovskites and their use together with 2-dimensional materials in perovskite solar cells. Since March 2020, he started his master thesis project on the development of Reactive Force Field (ReaxFF) for metal halide perovskites, in collaboration with Ivo Filot (Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, TU/e) and Adri van Duin (Penn State University, US).
