Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry

 
Herchel Smith Fellow

Daniel grew up on Anglesey in North Wales.  His background is primarily in the design, synthesis and investigation of organic polycyclic materials for optoelectronics. He obtained an MChem at Bangor University, carrying out research with Prof. Igor Perepichka. Daniel obtained his PhD in June 2018 after working at Durham University with Prof. Martin Bryce, where he developed organoiridium complexes and all-organic thermally activated delayed fluorescent materials for light emitting diodes.  He next worked as a postdoc at the University of Cambridge in Dr Hugo Bronstein’s group, shifting emphasis toward organic solar cells and conjugated polymers. His research interests encompass anything where the interaction of organic molecules and light is key, and he believes that solving the underlying research problems in these fields will start with original structural chemistry and molecular design. In October 2020 Daniel was appointed as a Herchel Smith research fellow in organic chemistry at the Department of Chemistry to focus on the development of new near-infrared organic dyes. Any significant advance here should bridge optoelectronic and biological research.
