David Cornil is graduated in chemistry from theUniversity of Mons (Belgium). He received his Master degree in 2006 andobtained his PhD in Sciences in 2010 under the supervision of Jérôme Cornil onthe “Theoretical Description of the Electronic Structure of Metal/OrganicInterfaces in Opto-Electronic Devices”. In october 2010 he joined the group ofProf. Jean-Luc Brédas in the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) as aPostdoctoral fellow. Since January 2012 he is a Postdoctoral fellow in theUniversity of Mons.

His works involve theoretical studies(quantum-chemical calculation) of the electronic processes taking place invarious interfaces such as organic/metal, organic/oxide and metal/oxide; andtheir implication in functionalized devices.
