Assoc Prof Koushik Venkatesan

Research summary

Associate Professor Koushik Venkatesan’s research interest is broadly focused on organic and organometallic materials chemistry. The central theme of the research involves the rational design and creation of novel molecular and macromolecular structures for light emitting devices, solar cells and molecular electronic applications. Our current goals involve investigations into achieving highly stable and luminescent triplet phosphors based on organometallic complexes by creation of new metal-ligand interactions.
