Dr. James Ryan
Dr. James Ryan is a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at Swansea University and leads a research group focused on developing new organic semiconductor materials and devices. James graduated from University College Dublin (UCD) with a BSc in Chemistry in 2009 and then moved to the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia to pursue a PhD on organic optoelectronic devices. Following his PhD, he then moved to the University of Tokyo in 2013 to focus on solution processed small molecule organic solar cells.
In 2015, James began his independent career at the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan and, following a brief return to UCD in 2018/19, made the move to Swansea in 2019. James has expertise across a range of topics related to organic electronic devices including device fabrication, material synthesis and processing, thin-film and nanoscale characterisation, and transient optoelectronic characterisation. His current interests centre on understanding and exploiting inter- and intramolecular interactions to build new functionalities in nano-materials and thin-films for emergent electronic devices.
