Dr. Zachary M. Hudson
Assistant Professor and Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Chemistry
Research in the Hudson group focuses on the development of photonic and electronic materials to address issues of sustainability in chemistry and materials science. Our group synthesizes new molecular and polymeric materials for applications in sensing, printed electronics, and efficient solid-state lighting. We also explore the synthesis of functional nanostructures from soft materials, their self-assembly into complex architectures, and their emerging applications in nanoscale electronics.

Well done Cheyenne and Jade for receiving NSERC PGS-D3, and Donny for receiving NSERC CGS-D3 this year.
Our recent work on the use of Cu(0)-RDRP as an efficient route to blue materials for OLEDs has appeared on the front cover of Polymer Chemistry. Read more here: 10.1039/C9PY00294D
4th-year students Sarah Halldorson and Lingzi Gao have been awarded prizes for the top theses in both CHEM 449 and CHEM 445. Congratulations!
Congratulations to the Hudson group's first graduate, Kelly Wang, for successfully defending her MSc thesis.
Zac has been appointed to NSERC Council, tasked with setting national science policy to achieve Canada's research goals.
Zac has been awarded a Tier 2 CRC in Sustainable Chemistry for his work on efficient lighting technologies. On hand for the announcement and a lab tour were Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan and Parliamentary Secretary for Science Terry Beech.
