Dr Matthew Griffith

Research summary

A continuing theme of Dr Griffith’s research since he received a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Wollongong has been teasing out the links between molecular structure and electronic functionality in organic semiconducting devices. His research spans a broad area of applications, from the fundamental science of optical processes and charge carrier behavior in semiconductors to the fabrication of printed sensors and bioelectronic devices on the roll to roll scale scale for industry. His latest research interests include using printed electronic smart inks to create biocompatible, implantable sensors for a wide range of applications, including edible electronics for the health industry, smart drug delivery systems, and radiation sensors for low cost, flexible environmental and personal health monitoring and advanced medical X-ray detectors.
