Andrew J Harvie
Background and activities
After my undergraduate degrees in Physics, I received my PhD in 2018 from the University of Leeds, UK, for work on development of quantum dots for biosensing.
My research interests include investigation of optically "interesting" materials, ranging from metallic nanoparticles to organic semiconductors. In general I am involved in developing tools (chemical, biological, optical or computational) to allow use of these materials in solving real-world problems.
I am currently employed as a post-doc in the Department of Chemistry at NTNU, where I am focussing on developing methodologies and hardware for improving flow-synthesis of functional materials.
