My work in UHMob
My work in UHMob will be focused on understanding the electron-phonon coupling of charge carriers in high mobility molecular semiconductors to low-frequency intermolecular vibrations. My work will include extracting reliable charge carrier mobility values of organic semiconductors in order to determine structure-properties relationship and to establish molecular design rules.
My doctoral studies began during very uncertain times. Therefore, I find it really important to keep my mind open to different possibilities and opportunities. However, I hope to remain dedicated to research.
I come from Lithuania, where I graduated from Vilnius University with Master’s degrees in chemistry. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking in nature or riding my bicycle.
Having participated in several international exchange and internship projects, I really appreciate being part of a project such as UHMob that brings people of different backgrounds together.
