Gregor Trimmel has received his MSc (Dipl.Ing.) (1996) in Technical Chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology, where in 2000 he also received his Ph.D. (Doctor Technicae) (Title of the PhD-Thesis “Inorganic organic hybrid materials using organically modified metal alkoxides for the syntheses of nanostructured materials”) in the group of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schubert.

In 2001 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI, France (research group Florence Babonneau) on sol-gel routes to SiOC-ceramics. After a second post-doctoral research stay at the University of Padova, Italy (research group: Lidia Armelao) for 5 months, he joined the Institute for Chemistry and Technology of Organic Materials (since 2009 ICTM, Institute for Chemistry and Technology of Materials) of the Graz University of Technology in August 2002.

In July 2008 he received the venia docendi for Macromolecular Chemistry and Technology (title of the habilitation thesis: Synthetic Routes towards Functional Polymers and Patterned Surface Layers). Since Aug. 2008 he is Associate Professor at the ICTM and leading the photovoltaic research group. From June 2008 till October 2013, he was director of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Nancomposite Solar Cells.

Current research activities are focused on the synthesis and characterisation of new materials in the area of functional polymers and inorganic organic hybrid materials especially for application in photovoltaics.
