Dr Mykhailo Klymenko

Research officer

Mykhailo Klymenko is a theoretical physicist specialized in semiconductor physics, device physics, nano- and optoelectronics. He has extensive experience in large-scale computations of electronic structure and optical response in semiconductor nanostructures.

PhD in Optics and Laser Physics, V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ukraine (2011)
MSc in laser and optoelectronic engineering, Kharkiv National University of Radio and Electronics, Ukraine (2005)
Centre Research: 

I study exciton transfer processes across the interface between organic and iorganic semiconductors as well as the effect organic covering layer on the electron transport in inorganic semiconductor. My work is related to the development of computational methods to characterize the mentioned above systems.

Centre Research Themes: 
2. Control of Excitons
Summary of any other of your centre responsibilities: 

Member of ECR committee since 2019
