Dr Daniel Tate is a postdoctoral researcher at the Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC), University of Manchester, currently working on iPESS, one of EPSRC Centre's flagship projects. Prior to taking up this appointment, Daniel worked at OMIC with Professor Michael Turner developing chemical field effect transistor sensors. He gained his PhD at the Centre for Molecular Nanoscience, University of Leeds, under the supervision of Professor Richard Bushby on the synthesis and uniaxial planar alignment of discotic liquid crystals for field effect transistors. Daniel continued this theme during a 1-year post doc with Professor Bushby, followed by a position with Professor Andrew Nelson, University of Leeds, developing aqueous electrochemical sensors.
His research interests include organic electronics, materials and polymers chemistry, chemical sensors and inkjet printing.
