Anna Köhler is a full professor at the University of Bayreuth since 2007. She received her PhD on “photocurrent spectrocsopy in organic semiconductors” in 1996 from the University of Cambridge, UK, and continued her research in the group of Prof. Sir R.H: Friend funded through Research Fellowships by Peterhouse and by the Royal Society. Her research is concerned with photophysical processes in organic and hybrid semiconductors. She focusses on the processes of energy and charge transfer in singlet and triplet excited states, the exciton dissociation mechanism and intermolecular/interchain interactions. In 2019, she received the Alexander Todd-Hans Krebs Lectureship, awarded jointly by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker.
