Mr Max Marcus

Stipendiary Lecturer in Physical Chemistry

Subjects: 
Chemistry

I am a DPhil student in Physical & Theoretical Chemistry in the group of Dr W. Barford investigating optical properties in conjugated polymers. I am interested in the structure-property relations of one-dimensional organic semiconductors and how these materials can be improved for applications such as organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes.

At Hertford I teach the third year Physical Chemistry course.
