His research interests focus on the design of novel organic conjugated aromatic semiconducting polymers for a range of optical, electronic, photovoltaic, and bio-electronic applications. This spans from chemical design conception, through synthesis and characterization. A key aspect of his research has involved control of the molecular alignment and organization of polymers and small molecules in the liquid crystalline phase, aiming towards a better understanding of the relationships between molecular self-assembly and charge transport properties of semiconducting polymers. His research led to the discovery of a liquid crystalline thiophene polymer which has served for over a decade as a benchmark semiconductor, employed in fundamental studies of the properties of organic field effect transistors, demonstrating the feasibility of solution processed organic polymers, and provided the impetus for advances in the field. More recently, his research interests have encompassed organic electronics, solar cells, OLEDs, organic bioelectronics and spintronics. He is a co-inventor on 56 patent families filed from these research activities, and has published over 250 peer reviewed publications.

Antje Boetius is Professor of Geomicrobiology at the University Bremen, and leader of a joint research group on Deep Sea Ecology and Technology of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research and the Max Planck Institute of Marine Microbiology. She is Vice Director of MARUM Center for Marine Environmental Sciences. Antje has studied Biology and Biological Oceanography at the University of Hamburg and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Her PhD thesis dealt with deep-sea microbiology and biogeochemistry. She became Professor for Microbiology in 2001 at the Jacobs University in Bremen, and was Group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology from 2003-2008. Antje Boetius is an expert of marine biogeochemistry, biological oceanography, deep-sea biology and microbial of the ocean. She works on polar seas, on chemosynthetic ecosystems and other extreme habitats of the ocean. Antje Boetius has lead or participated in over 45 seagoing expeditions, and she has coordinated many national and international ocean research programs. Antje Boetius and her team are renowned for their contributions to the diversity and function of life associated with seafloor processes, including pelagobenthic coupling, gas seepage and fluid flow, and the structure, function and dynamics of microbial communities of the ocean floor. The group uses novel technologies and methods for the study of life at the bottom of the ocean. Current studies include the exploration of Arctic deep-sea life under the ice, and the long-term observation of the effects of global warming on polar ecosystems as well as on hypoxic aquatic ecosystems. Antje Boetius was head of the Science Commisstion of Germany’s Science Council. She is member of the advisory boards of many international and national research programs, marine research institutes and museums. She has been awarded with the Medaille de la Societe d’Oceanographie de France, the Gottfried-Wilhelm-Leibniz Prize of the DFG, the Advanced Grant of the ERC, the Petersen Price and Hector Fellow, among many other honors. Antje Boetius has been elected as an external scientific member of the Max Planck Society, to the German National Academy Leopoldina (Section Geology), and to the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz. She is an elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and of the American Academy of Microbiology. She engages much in public outreach and transfer of knowledge on the role of the ocean in the Earth System, as well as on the value of (bio)diversity.
