Christian McDonald

PhD  Student


I hold a BAdvSc(Hons) from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia and achieved Honours Class 1 in 2022. My honours thesis was written on phosphorescent platinum complexes, performing spectroscopic analysis of solution-processable novel platinum complexes and studying the exciton transport mechanisms of phosphorescent materials.


In January 2023, I began my PhD project under the supervision of Prof. Reinder Coehoorn in the group of Molecular Materials and Nanosystems at the Eindhoven University of Technology. I am one of the PhD candidates who are working on the TADFSolutions project. My work will mainly consist of analysing solution processed thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) materials, wherein I will demonstrate the impact of solution processing on such materials and develop models for more robust computational analysis of solution processed TADF materials.
