Erin studied for her MChem in Chemistry at the University of York before moving to Cambridge to join the NanoDTC. In the past she has worked on the rational design of anthraquinone dyes for the development of next-generation guest-host Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs), the synthesis of napthalene diimides (NDis) and their derivatives, developing stimuli-responsive artifical cells, and the use of conductive Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) for electrochemical carbon capture. Now she is focussing on the novel synthesis and spectroscopic study of mainly blue-emitting Multi-Resonant TADF materials (MR-TADFs) to simultaneously develop matrix-free hyperfluorescent OLED devices and understand the processes and mechanisms which underpin the stability and function of these terminal emitters.
