Peter Zalar

Peter Zalar obtained his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2014. His doctoral research under the supervision of Prof. Thuc-Quyen Nguyen focused on the characterization of the optical and electronic properties of novel π-conjugated polymers. He then joined the group of Prof. Takao Someya at The University of Tokyo as a project researcher. In that time he worked on the development of optoelectronic devices based on organic semiconductors for electronic skins and medical monitoring. Since January 2017, he has been working at Holst Centre in the group of hybrid and printed electronics, where his research focuses on printed sensors. He is the author of 33 peer-reviewed publications (>3000 citations, h-index: 20) and holds 3 granted patents in the field of printed electronics and materials chemistry.
