Natalie Stingelin(-Stutzmann) FRSC is a Professor of Organic Functional Materials at the Department of Materials, Imperial College London. She held a part-time Senior Researcher position (20%) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Techology (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland (2003-2013) and was an External Senior Fellow at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS), Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (2010 - 2013). Prior to these appointments she conducted research at the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, the Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven, and as junior staff at Queen Mary University of London. She obtained the degree of Engineer in Materials Science in 1997 from the Eidgenönissische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich, and her PhD in 2001, for which she was awarded the ETH Medal.She has published more than 130 papers and 6 issued patents.
Prof. Stingelin is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, received a €1.2 Million ERC Starting Independent Researcher Award in 2011 (http://erc.europa.eu/) and is, among other things, a Co-I of the newly established EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large Area Electronics (http://www-large-area-electronics.eng.cam.ac.uk/). She is leading the €4 Million EC Marie-Curie Trainining Network 'INFORM' that involves 11 European partners. She was awarded the Istitute of Materials, Minerals & Mining's Rosenhain Medal and Prize (2014) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) President's International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI) Award for Visiting Scientists (2015) and will be Chair of the 2016 Gordon Conference on 'Electronic Processes in Organic Materials'.
Her current research interests encompass the broad field of organic functional materials, including organic electronics; multifunctional inorganic/organic hybrids; smart, advanced optical systems based on organic matter; and bioelectronics.
