Iain McCulloch, Ph.D.


Adjunct Professor of Chemical Science​

Research Interests

​Professor McCulloch's research interests are in the design and synthesis of semiconducting small molecules and polymers for use in organic electronic devices.  This has focussed on understanding and  control of microstructure and energy levels in conjugated aromatic semiconducting polymers and the subsequent impact on device properties.
