Background and activities

 

John de Mello joined NTNU in 2018 as a professor of chemistry and the director of the university’s strategic initiative in nanoscience and functional materials, NTNU Nano (https://www.ntnu.edu/employees/john.demello). Prior to this, he was a professor of nanomaterials in the chemistry department at Imperial College London. His research is focused on controlled production processes for functional materials, and their application to photonic, electronic and bioelectronic devices. He has published over 140 papers (H-Index 55), and was a co-recipient of the Royal Society's Brian Mercer Award for Innovation in Nanotechnology. His group has been responsible for a number of innovations in nanoscience and flow chemistry, including the development of nanofabrication methods at the sub-5-nm level, the application of microfluidics to nanocrystal synthesis, and the first report of a fully autonomous self-optimising flow reactor.
