Prof. Andrey Turchanin
Andrey Turchanin studied physics and materials science at the National University of Science and Technology, Moscow (Ph.D. 1999). In 2000 he moved to the University of Karlsruhe with an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship. 2004-2014 he joined the Faculty of Physics at the University of Bielefeld where he completed his habilitation in 2010. In 2012 Turchanin was awarded a Heisenberg Fellowship of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and in 2013 the Bernhard-Heß-Prize of the University of Regensburg for his research in the field of emerging 2D materials. In 2014 he became a professor of physical chemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, where he is leading the group of “Applied Physical Chemistry & Molecular Nanotechnology”. His current research interests are focused on the materials science of 2D materials and their applications in electronics, optoelectronics and nanobiotechnology.
