Johannes Gladisch received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Biosystems technology/Bioinformatics from the University of Applied Sciences in Wildau, Germany. His BSc thesis dealt with protein recovery from plants trough biorefineries. In his master’s thesis he was developing a gold nanoparticle-based biosensor for pathogen detection. This included the synthesis and characterization of gold nanoparticles as well as modification of the gold nanoparticle surfaces with antibodies.
In 2018, he joined the Electronic Plants group at Linköping University as a PhD student. Johannes’ work focuses on thiophene based conjugated polymers that show extreme volume changes under electrochemical addressing. In addition, his looking into using these materials in various devices.
