Iain McCulloch is currently Professor of Polymer Materials in the Chemistry Department at Imperial College London, having joined in October 2007. His research focus is in the development of high performance organic semiconductor materials for application in organic field effect transistors (OFET) and organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices.These activities are carried out in collaboration with colleagues within both the Physics and Chemistry Departments at Imperial College.

Iain is co-inventor on over 50 patent families filed from these research activities, and has published over 150 publications in peer reviewed journals.
