Prof. Iwan Moreels
Ghent University, BelgiumHe received his Ph.D. degree in applied physics from Ghent university (Belgium) in 2009, on the synthesis of near-infrared colloidal quantum dots and application on a silicon photonics platform. He continued as a postdoc at Ghent University, focusing, in collaboration with the IBM Zürich research lab (Switzerland), on the investigation of fluorescent quantum dots using time-resolved optical spectroscopy. In 2012 he joined the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Italy), where he started, in 2014, the Nanocrystal Photonics Lab in the Nanochemistry Department. In 2017 he returned to Ghent University and joined the Department of Chemistry, continuing his work on the synthesis of 2D nanocrystals.

Dr. Sahar Alialy
Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Ireland
Dr. Sahar Alialy is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Trinity College Dublin. She is working on the ERC (European Research Council) funded project to create computer networks that could mimic the functions of the human brain, called Neuromorphic devices. She is using different fabrication techniques to develop the electronic devices comprised of metallic, polymer, and semiconducting

Dr. Gil Shalev
Ben-Gurion University, Israel
Gil Shalev received his bachelor and master degrees in physics at the Tel-Aviv University, and his Ph.D.
in physical electronics in Tel- Aviv University, as well. The topic of his dissertation involved specific
protein detection with silicon-based devices. He held a postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute
(Germany) where he worked on integrating nanotechnology with advanced schemes for silicon-based
photovoltaics. Currently, Gil is the head of the Lab for Device Innovation with the department of electrical
engineering in Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. Gil published articles in

Prof. Andrej Singer
Cornell University, USAAndrej Singer received his Ph.D. degree (2012) in Physics from the University of Hamburg, Germany in the lab of Prof. Edgar Weckert and Prof. Ivan Vartanyants, following a Physics diploma from the University of Muenster, Germany. He studied the properties of new x-ray sources, particularly their ability to generate interference patterns, similar to lasers in optics. He then worked as a Postdoc in the lab of Prof. Oleg Shpyrko at the University of California San Diego and applied coherent x-ray scattering techniques to study a wider range of materials, spanning from fundamental correlated electron materials and applied “real” materials in operando devices to photonic crystals, in particular those present in nature.
Talk title: Nanoscale dynamics in quasi-periodic complex materials
Prof. Jonathan Owen
Columbia University, USAJonathan Owen obtained a BS from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2000 and a PhD from Caltech in 2005, Following his PhD, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Professor Paul Alivisatos at UC Berkeley. In 2009 he joined the faculty at Columbia University where he is currently Associate Professor of Chemistry. His group studies the coordination chemistry of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals and the mechanism of their nucleation and growth. He has received several awards including The 3M Nontenured Faculty Award (2010); The Early Career Award from the Department of Energy (2011); The DuPont Young Faculty Award (2011); A Career Award from the National Science Foundation (2012); The Award in Pure Chemistry from the American Chemical Society (2016).

Dr. Alexander Weber-Bargioni
UC Berkeley, USADr. Alexander Weber-Bargioni focuses on exploring quantum phenomena and fundamental optoelectronic processes at their respective length and time scales in low dimensional material systems and nano building block assemblies. He is facility director of the imaging and manipulation facility at the Molecular Foundry, where novel measurement techniques are developed to access critical and yet so far inaccessible parameter spaces for nano scale science. Before his appointment as facility director Dr. Weber-Bargioni was staff scientist at the Molecular Foundry (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), where he also did his PostDoc. He received his PhD in physics from the University of British Columbia (2007) and graduated from he University of Konstanz with a Vordiplom (bachelor) in physics. He is recipient of the DOE Early Career award, Bavarian Guest Professor award, R&D 100 award, and the LBL Director’s Award of Excellence. Dr. Weber-Bargioni published more then 70 articles, including in Science, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Physics, Nature Chemistry, Nature Energy, Nature Communication, Nature Light & Science, PRL. In his spare time, Alexander Weber-Bargioni is ski mountaineering, explores American and European mountains on a bike or on foot, cooks, woodworks and runs an artisanal olive oil farm in his home Tuscany.
