At the beginning of November 2021, Gibu George joined the DiMoCat group as a PhD researcher in training with a FI-SDUR fellowship financed by the Generalitat de Catalunya. During his PhD, he will be working on charge transfer processes with a focus to fullerene donor/acceptor dyads and fullerene:perovskite hybrid solar cells. His work will be supervised by Prof. Miquel Solà and Dr. Antony Stasyuk.
Gibu George (1996) obtained his B.Sc. in Chemistry in 2017 and his M.Sc. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry in 2019, both at Mahatma Gandhi University (India). During his master’s, he worked under the supervision of Dr. Jayasree E.G at the University of Kerala (India). After that, he moved to Cochin University of Science and Technology (India) for about 3 months to work with Dr. Susmita De.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has not been easy for Gibu to get the visa (Spanish embassy was closed) and the flight to come to Girona. Fortunately, finally was able to get the visa and he joined our group on 2nd November 2020. We wish him good luck with his PhD!
