Introduction

Damian received his MPhys degree in Physics from Southampton University (2001). Subsequently, Damian worked at the Space Department, Qinetiq Ltd., before moving to Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, where he received his PhD degree. His doctoral thesis was focussed on organosiloxane based bistable materials for use in displays and other applications. Following his PhD, Damian worked at Cambridge Display Technology Ltd., developing organic electroluminescent and photovoltaic systems. After joining the group in February 2008, Damian is currently working on the DTI funded hybrid electroluminescent liquid-crystal 2 (ELLC 2) project in collaboration with Pelikon Ltd.
