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 organic electronics 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.
