Christoph Busche completed a Diplom in Chemistry, followed by a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry in the group of Prof. Peter Comba on Molecular Magnetism, both at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität, Heidelberg, Germany. From May 2010 till October 2015 I was working as a Post-doctoral research associate in the group of Prof. Lee Cronin, University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Since October 2015 I am working as a Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow on a 5-year Royal Society of Edinburgh/Scottish Government Personal Research Fellowship. My interest in magnetic compounds and their uses was first sparked by my doctoral thesis at the University of Heidelberg. In my time, as postdoctoral researcher I pursued this interest by exploring the electronic, electrochemical and physicochemical behaviour of nanoscale molecular architectures. I went a step further by investigating their incorporation in electronic devices. My work is focused on understanding the redox and magnetic behaviour of coordination compounds via electrochemistry, EPR spectroscopy and magnetic measurements, to shed light on the possible use of these molecules in electronic devices. My private hobbies are hill waking, HEMA and photography, especially alternative photographic methods like cyanotype, argyrotype and other iron-based printing methods.
