Research Expertise

Description

Prof. Werner Blau is Director of the interdisciplinary Materials Ireland Polymer Research Centre in Trinity College Dublin, which encompasses researchers from the fields of physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer simulation with a substantial track record in technology transfer and collaboration with Irish industry. He is also Research Director of TCD's HEA PRTLI project in Advanced Materials, based in the new Sami Nasr Institute for Advanced Materials. His research interests concentrate on molecular engineering of advanced materials, properties and applications of responsive molecular and polymeric materials for electronics, optoelectronics, and bio/medical applications and basic materials, processes and devices for molecular nanoelectronics and bio-nanotechnology. Published over 340 peer-reviewed papers to-date, edited three books and is coauthor of 13 patents/ patent applications. Supervised over 80 postgraduate students and postdoctoral research fellows and numerous undergraduate and summer student projects.
