Denis Andrienko

MPIP-Mainz, Germany


Denis Andrienko is a project leader at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research working on the development of multi-scale simulation techniques for charge and exciton transport in conjugated polymers as well as small molecular weight organic semiconductors. After completing his Masters degree in the University of Kiev he obtained his first Ph.D. in optics/structural transitions in liquid crystals from the Institute of Physics, Ukraine (group of Prof. Reznikov) and his second Ph.D. on computer simulations of complex fluids from the University of Bristol, UK (group of Prof. M. P. Allen). He joined MPIP as a Humboldt Fellow doing theoretical studies of the slippage effect, mechanical properties of polyelectrolyte microcapsules, and effective interactions in colloidal systems.
