Dr John Hardy

Lecturer in Materials Chemistry

Research Overview

I am a multidisciplinary scientist with experience in chemistry, materials science, pharmacy and biomedical engineering. I am interested in developing materials that interact with electricity, light and magnetism for a variety of technical applications (e.g. transient electronics) and medical applications (drug delivery, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine). I am particularly interested in bioelectronics (e.g. biodegradable conducting polymers, 3D printable conducting polymers) and biophotonics for drug delivery, tissue engineering and neuromodulation.
