About

Emrys Evans studied Chemistry at the University of Oxford (MChem 2012; DPhil 2016, supervised by Professor Christiane Timmel). His PhD project was on the photo- and spin physics of light-induced radical pairs implicated in magnetoreception for animal navigation. Following this he worked with Professor Sir Richard Friend at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge as a Research Associate (2016-2019) and Leverhulme Early Career Fellow (2019-2020). At Cambridge he conducted research on organic semiconductors and radical materials for optoelectronics in collaboration with Professor Feng Li, Jilin University. In 2020 he was awarded a Royal Society University Fellowship to lead research at Swansea University on ‘Radical energy and spin control in organic electronics.’

Career Highlights

Research

Radicals have unpaired electrons, leading to unusual chemistry and physics that could be used in next-generation organic electronics. Emrys’s research explores novel functionality that arises from luminescence, magnetism and spin properties in these materials.
