Research profile

Geert Brocks is Professor in the Center for Computational Energy Research (CCER) within the Department of Applied Physics of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His activities are centered around first-principles electronic structure calculations. His past activities have involved such diverse subjects as atomic-scale processes at semiconductor surfaces and interfaces, organic and molecular electronics and spintronics, solid hydrides for chemical hydrogen storage, and adsorption-induced electronic effects in graphene. His current interests include two-dimensional materials and photocatalysis for energy applications.

Academic background

After obtaining his PhD degree, Geert Brocks worked at Philips Research Laboratories for nine years. In 1998, he moved to the University of Twente. In 2018, he joined the TU/e and CCER in 2018 as part-time professor.
