Prof. Eli Zysman-Colman
Eli Zysman-Colman obtained his Ph.D. from McGill University in 2003 under the supervision of Prof. David N. Harpp
as an FCAR scholar where he conducting research in physical organic sulfur chemistry. He then completed two postdoctoral
fellowships, one in supramolecular chemistry with Jay Siegel at the Organic Chemistry Institute, University of Zurich as an
FQRNT fellow and the other in inorganic materials chemistry with Stefan Bernhard at Princeton University as a PCCM fellow.
He joined the department of chemistry at the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec, Canada as an assistant professor in 2007.
In 2013, he moved to the University of St Andrews where he is presently Reader in Optoelectronic Materials. His research
program focuses on the rational design of: (I) luminophores for energy-efficient visual displays and flat panel lighting based
on organic light emitting diode (OLED) and light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEEC) device architectures; (II) light harvesting
dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and organic photovoltaics; (III) sensing materials employed in
electrochemiluminescence; and (IV) photoredox catalysts for organic reactions.
