Yana Vaynzof is the Chair for Rising Digital Applied sciences at TU Dresden and the Director of the Institute for Rising Digital Applied sciences on the Leibniz Institute for Stable State and Supplies Analysis Dresden (IFW). Her analysis pursuits give attention to the event of novel semiconducting supplies with specific give attention to their integration into photovoltaic gadgets. She was already awarded an ERC Beginning Grant in 2017.

“Metal halide perovskites are a unique class of materials with extraordinary properties that are perfectly suited for application in optoelectronic devices such as solar cells and light-emitting diodes” she explains. Collectively along with her analysis group, Prof. Vaynzof has been investigating metallic halide perovskites processed from resolution over the past years, specializing in enhancing the effectivity and stability of perovskite photovoltaic gadgets.

The ERC-funded challenge, “PEROVAP – Engineering Metal Halide Perovskites by Vapour deposition” goals to develop novel strategies to systematically manipulate the properties of thermally evaporated metallic halide perovskites. “While solution processed perovskites have been intensively investigated in recent years, significantly less research was dedicated to their deposition by thermal evaporation – a solvent-free, scalable method of high industrial relevance,” explains Prof. Vaynzof and provides: “By developing novel engineering approaches for the vapour deposition of metal halide perovskites, we can facilitate their integration into a range of industrial applications, even beyond photovoltaics.”


INTERACT” to uncover the neural foundation of empathy and perspective taking

Philipp Kanske is Professor of Scientific Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at Technische Universität Dresden. He researches the emotional and cognitive processes that allow social conduct and their adjustments in psychological issues. Together with his ERC challenge „INTERACT – The interaction of neural networks enabling social interplay“, he now desires to research how the skills to really feel empathy and to soak up the opposite individual’s perspective are applied within the mind. Specifically, he’ll examine how the neuronal networks that allow empathy and perspective taking work collectively in advanced social interactions. To this finish, he’ll additional develop strategies of social neuroscience and examine topics in social interplay within the MRI scanner. The purpose of INTERACT is to develop a coaching program that’s tailor-made to the person’s targets and desires and makes use of small workout routines in empathy and perspective-taking to enhance social interplay. “As a psychotherapist, I can directly experience how important empathy and perspective-taking are for good social relationships, especially in critical situations such as an argument with a partner. People with mental disorders in particular often have problems forming their social relationships in a way that is good for them. With INTERACT, I hope to contribute to a better understanding of how empathy and perspective-taking function psychologically and neuroscientifically, in order to be able to develop a targeted and tailored training program for people with difficulties in social interaction,” explains Prof. Kanske.

The Obsessed Guy
Hi, I'm The Obsessed Guy and I am passionate about artificial intelligence. I have spent years studying and working in the field, and I am fascinated by the potential of machine learning, deep learning, and natural language processing. I love exploring how these technologies are being used to solve real-world problems and am always eager to learn more. In my spare time, you can find me tinkering with neural networks and reading about the latest AI research.
