Matthias Haeussler received his Masters degree in Chemistry from the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany in 2002. He then joined Prof. Ben Zhong Tang's group at The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, where he completed his PhD in summer 2006 working on conjugated hyperbranched polymers. In April 2007, Matthias moved on to his current position at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), where he is working in the field of organic photovoltaics and electroactive materials.
