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.
