Associate Editors

Professor Natalie R BanerjiNatalie R Banerji, PhD
Professor, Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmacy
University of Bern
Bern, Switzerland

Natalie Banerji is currently a Full Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Bern. Her research interests include the study of organic and hybrid materials using ultrafast spectroscopic techniques, in view of solar cell and bioelectronic applications. For the latter, she was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2016. Her group uses a complementary palette of techniques combining time-resolved spectroscopy, pulsed photocurrent methods, terahertz experiments, Stark-effect spectroscopy and device testing. Natalie studied Chemistry at the University of Geneva and obtained her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 2009 (with Prof. Eric Vauthey). She then moved to the University of California in Santa Barbara (USA), to work on organic solar cells during a post-doctoral stay with Prof. Alan J. Heeger (2009-2011). In 2011, she was given the opportunity to start her independent research career in Switzerland at the Ecole Polytechnique Férérale de Lausanne (EPFL). She then was nominated Associate Professor at the University of Fribourg in 2015 before moving to Bern in 2017.
