Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


Herchel Smith Research Fellow

Craig was born and raised in China and spent his teenage years in Canada. He received his BSc in chemistry at University of Toronto, and MSc in materials chemistry at University of Ottawa. He then moved to Japan to carry out his PhD studies as a JSPS fellow on the development of novel organic semiconductors under the supervision of Profs. Toshihiro Okamoto and Jun Takeya at the University of Tokyo. He joined the department of chemistry at University of Cambridge as a Herchel Smith research fellow in 2022. His current research with Profs. Hugo Bronstein and Henning Sirringhaus explores the interplay between charge transport and electroluminescence of π-conjugated polymers for organic electrically-pumped lasers.
