Biography

Vincenzo Pecunia is a Principal Investigator and Associate Professor at the Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials, Soochow University (China). He is also a Visiting Researcher at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge (UK). He earned his Bachelor's and Master's in Electronics Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). Subsequently, he obtained his PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge (UK), where he also worked as a postdoctoral scientist.
His research has addressed the physics of printable optoelectronic materials, with a focus on polymer and amorphous-metal-oxide semiconductors, and their application to thin-film transistors and large-area electronics. The Thin-Film Optoelectronics Group that he leads is active in the charge transport physics and photoelectronic properties of solution-processed semiconductors, related optoelectronic devices (e.g., solar cells, photodetectors, and thin-film transistors), and their application to printed
electronics. 
Drawing from his research experience, he has recently co-authored a monograph for Cambridge University Press titled Organic and Amorphous-Metal-Oxide Flexible Analogue Electronics (www.cambridge.org/pecunia).
