Prof Andrew Holmes

Research summary

Andrew Holmes is a Melbourne Laureate Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne. His research interests have been at the interface of synthesis with materials science and biology. This commenced with early work in Cambridge on polymer LEDs and was extended in Melbourne to printing large area organic and polymer-based photovoltaic devices. Much of the latter work was conducted within the Victorian Organic Solar Cell Consortium (VICOSC), involving a partnership between Melbourne, Monash and CSIRO with selected industrial partners.
