Synthesis of materials for solar cells, Stable radicals complexes of Pt(II), Metallopolymers

I completed my Ph.D in 2014. During Ph.D, worked on synthesis and characterization of Metal and Metal free organic molecules for dye sensitized solar cells. Then moved to Korea Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea as a Visiting scientist for 1 year, where I worked on polymeric ligands and their complexes(metallopolymers). Then moved to University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK for a couple of years as a Marie-Curie fellow. Where I worked on majorly design, synthesis and characterization of organic and metal organic molecules as well as nano-CuI for p-type DSSCs. Later moved to University of Lorraine, France. Mostly worked on bi and tri-dentate N-heterocyclic varbene ligands and their Fe(II) complexes for DSSCs and photophysical properties (Excited state life times). Currently working as postdoctoral researcher at North Carolina State University, USA. My major is synthesis and characterization of Pt(II) stable mono and bi radical complexes.
