Florian Glöcklhofer is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow in the Department of Chemistry. His research interests lie in the field of π-conjugated organic compounds, with a focus on the design and synthesis of π-conjugated macrocycles for battery electrodes and on the development of new synthetic approaches to aromatics.
Florian received his PhD from TU Wien in Vienna (Austria) in 2017, having developed a new synthetic method for the preparation of cyanated aromatic compounds. In 2018, after a year at TU Wien as a postdoctoral researcher developing thioalkyl-substituted polymers and post-polymerization modification methods, he moved to Imperial College London for his Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship project on π-conjugated macrocycles.
Florian has published more than 20 peer-reviewed journal articles, including 13 articles published as first or last author.
