Naim Obeid

Postdoctoral Researcher

Naim completed his MS degree from the department of chemistry at the University of Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France, with a focus in organic synthesis and materials science. He finalized his master’s thesis at Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal (CRPP), on Ultra-thin films with structured surfaces that support surface plasmon-polaritons in the infra-red and visible ranges using typical fabrication techniques like Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) for growing thin plasmonic layers and approaches in characterizing the obtained structures. At the end of 2017, Naim completed his PhD in general and inorganic chemistry at Saarland University, Germany, under the supervision of Professor David Scheschkewitz. His thesis focused on the incorporation of Si=Si bonds into carbon-based pi-systems to create new functional low valent silicon species and study the optoelectronic properties of the obtained molecular systems. Then he joined Beirut Arab University (BAU) as an Assistant Professor, where he has Inorganic Chemistry, Chemical Kinetics and Materials Science Courses. In September 2020, he moved to Germany for his first Post-Doctoral stint in the research group of Prof. Thomas Fassler, Technical University of Munich (TUM), where he has gained expertise in homoatomic nine atom clusters Silicon and Germanium with naked Vertices. In August 2021, Naim joined Celine Calvino’s group, Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (LivMatS), Freiburg University, as an internship seeking to enhance his knowledge of polymer chemistry, the Development of dynamic photo-crosslinkers towards renewable thermosets.
