Weipeng Yin (2018 – 2019), MSci
Weipeng conducted his MSci project focused on the synthesis of isoindigo-based conjugated polymers as contrast agents for photoacoustic imaging under the joint supervision of Dr Bob Schroeder and Prof. Alethea Tabor.
Yassin H. Andaloussi (2018 – 2019), MSci
Yassin’s research, jointly supervised with Dr Krešo Bučar, focussed on how supramolecular hydrogen bonding interactions can be exploited in crystal engineering to improve the solid-state and physical properties of molecular semiconductors.
Dr Samuel Cryer (2017 – 2018), PDRA
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.
