Molecular electronics – understanding the interdependencies of molecular structure and electronic function.

Short Biography

Franziska Lissel is currently a postdoctoral scholar in chemical engineerings at Stanford University working with Zhenan Bao. Previously, she was graduated with a Ph.D. in the natural sciences (Dr. sc. nat.) on probing electronic properties through the specific design of organometallic molecules from University of Zuerich in 2014 under the supervision of Heinz Berke. Prior to this, she studied biology and chemistry at the University of Bremen from where she earned a M.Sc. in chemistry (Dipl.-Chem.) in 2010. In 2014, she was awarded with a postdoctoral fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). She worked in research projects with IBM Research and Samsung.
