Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry (PhD)
Red-Emitting Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescent Materials for Sensor Applications
1) Luminescent materials design for applications in organic electronics.
2) Fluorescent polymer nanoparticles for biological sensing with high sensitivity.
3) Ultrastable fluorophores for catalysis, electroluminescence, and two-photon fluorescence.
Academic: A first-class grade point average (80%+) majoring in chemistry or a closely related discipline. Senior-level courses in chemistry are an asset.
Research: Undergraduate research experience, including a senior thesis project and one or more terms as a summer research assistant. Experience in one or more areas of synthetic chemistry (organic, inorganic, polymer) are an asset.
Soft skills: i) Interest in broad, multidisciplinary areas of chemistry and materials science; ii) A desire to work collaboratively as part of a team to accomplish shared goals.
