Bart is from St. Radegund, a cosy village at the bottom of the mountain Schöckl in the Austrian state of Styria. He studied chemistry at the University of Graz and the Graz University of Technology (Austria). In 2015, Bart earned his PhD working on organic chemistry in single- and multiphase continuous flow regimes in the group of Prof. C. Oliver Kappe at the University of Graz. Following his doctoral work, Bart moved to Peter Seeberger's lab in Potsdam (Germany), where he started to focus on heterogeneous photocatalysis and also developed novel continuous flow techniques for processing solids.  In 2018, Bart started his independent research career as a group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Potsdam, Germany). Since 2019, Bart is also a lecturer at the University of Potsdam and is part of the Cluster of Excellence Unifying Systems in Catalysis. In 2022, he spent time as visiting scientist/professor at the California institute of Technology (Pasadena, USA, Greg Fu). Bart will join the faculty of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) in summer 2023
