Pascal Friederich conducts research in the field of virtual material design, in particular artificial intelligence-supported material simulations and the autonomisation of experiments. These research fields are highly relevant in view of increasing demands on material properties and the need for ever faster cycles of material development, enabling a wide range of possible applications. In his dissertation, Friederich developed a new method for calculating the material properties of organic semiconductors, thereby paving the way for the design of novel organic semiconductors. During research stays at Harvard and Toronto as a Marie Curie Fellow, he also worked on developing machine learning methods that are of relevance to other subjects such as chemistry.
