On behalf of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C Editorial Office I would like to congratulate Dr Neil Robertson, University of Edinburgh, on his recent promotion to Professor.
Neil Robertson graduated from the University of Edinburgh for his BSc and PhD degrees, and then worked in the Freie Universität Berlin, University of Wales Bangor and Imperial College London before returning to Edinburgh where he has remained since 2001. His research is focused on the design, synthesis, characterisation and application of new molecules for electronic materials, including dye-sensitised and perovskite solar cells, and multifunctional molecular semiconductors incorporating optical and magnetic properties.
He has acted as Deputy Director of the Supergen Excitonic Solar Cells Consortium (UK) and Director of the Scottish Institute for Solar Energy Research and Energy Technology Partnership. He is a Fellow of the UK higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has initiated the Solar Spark project promoting low-cost solar energy to the wider public, which now links into Royal Society of Chemistry “Learn Chemistry”.
