Dr Samuel Cryer (2017 – 2018)
After focusing on polymer materials for solar and transistor devices during his PhD at Imperial College London (2017), he moved into a teaching and support lecturer position at UCL to work on polymer materials for thermoelectric applications.
As well as research, Sam is also interested in communicating science to anyone who’s interested. This has comprised of various ventures, notably: consulting for the discovery channel on their web series ‘Outrageous Acts of Science’; co-leading a large scale multi-departmental interactive art installation at the Imperial Festival to fuse art and science together; and recreating 18th Century Robert Boyle experiments with history undergraduates to explore the evidence for the resurrection of Christ (at the UCL Institute of Making).
Sam is currently a Founding Analyst at Deep Science Ventures.
