Kasper Moth-Poulsen (b. 1978) is a Postdoctoral Associate at the College of
Chemistry, U.C. Berkeley. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2007 from the
Nano-Science Center and Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen.
Kasper Moth-Poulsen's research interests lie within the areas of, single
molecule electronics, supramolecular chemistry, Langmuir-Blodgett Films, nanochemistry,
renewable energy, and solar thermal energy storage. He has published 16 papers
in scientific journals including several contributions to high impact journals,
and he has contributed at more than 20 scientific meetings and conferences.
Kasper Moth-Poulsen is strongly committed to applied aspects of scientific
research. In 2007 he was the co-founder of of MothMortensen ApS, the first Danish
contract research organization dedicated to surface chemistry, biocompatibility,
and customer tailored nanoparticles.
In September 2009 Kasper Moth-Poulsen became associated with the research
groups of Professors Peter Vollhardt and Rachel Segalman at the College of Chemistry,
U.C. Berkeley where he is currently developing new materials for solar thermal
energy storage and conversion.
