Professor Thomas Bjørnholm (b. 1960), Director of Nano-Science Center at the University of Copenhagen since 2001, obtained his Ph.D. in materials chemistry in 1990. In 1992 he became affiliated with the Chemistry Department at the University of Copenhagen as Associate Professor, in 2000 as Research Professor and in 2005 as full Professor. In 1997 he was a visiting professor at the University of Texas at Austin and since 2003 he has been the chairman of the Copenhagen Graduate School for Nanoscience and Nanotecnology.

Thomas Bjørnholms main research interests lie within the area of organic electronics, single molecule science, supramolecular chemistry, bio-nanotechnology, Langmuir-Blodgett Films, nanochemistry, bionano technology, and synthetic biology. Recent achievements include the first measurement of the nanoscale dewetting of extended hydrophobic surfaces in water and the first measurements of a single pi-conjugated organic molecule in a single electron transistor device visiting a number of distinct redox states. He has published more than 145 papers in scientific journals and books including several contributions to high impact journals as Science and Nature, and given more than 170 invited talks at conferences and research institutions.

Thomas Bjørnholm is elected member of the Royal Danish Academy of Science and Letters, the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences, the Danish Natural Science Academy, the Danish Board of Technology, and he has received several research awards.
