BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Chan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2005. From 2005 to 2010, he pursued a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at MIT under Prof. Timothy Swager in the area of conjugated macrocycles and polymers. After MIT, Dr. Chan did postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley with Prof. F. Dean Toste, followed by a subsequent appointment in the Advanced Organic Materials division of IBM Almaden Research Center. His research program at uOttawa focuses on novel organic materials for optoelectronic applications.
