Eric Daniel Głowacki

CEITEC Central European Institute of Technology, Brno University of Technology, Brno, Czech Republic

Eric Glowacki studied chemistry at the University of Rochester, USA, completing BSc and MSc degrees in materials chemistry (2009). He worked on optical and optoelectronic materials. In parallel, he studied central European history, earning a dual degree in 2009. He completed his PhD in chemistry in 2013 at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, specializing in bioelectronic and flexible electronic devices. He continued as a postdoc in Linz (2013-2016), with research interest moving into the field of electrophysiology and especially optoelectronic stimulation of excitable cells. In 2016, he was awarded a Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellowship, which allowed him to start an independent research group at Linköping University in Sweden. His group has worked on devices for stimulation of the nervous system, as well as reactive oxygen species generation. These two areas of research, namely stimulation devices, and reactive oxygen species electro/photochemistry, are at the core of his interests. In 2020, he was awarded the European Research Council Starting Grant, with which he moved to Brno and established a new research group dedicated to bioelectronics at CEITEC, Brno University of Technology. Eric is interested in neural interface technologies and bioelectronic medicine, as well as fundamental research in electrophysiology. Outside of his direct research topics, Eric is interested in history, open science, and emergency first aid and rescue. Eric is fluent in Polish, Czech, and English. He likes running, skiing, and drinking beer.
