Dr Alex Loch

  • Research Associate (School of Chemistry)


I completed a dual bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and Science (with a major in Chemistry) at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, followed by an honours degree in Chemistry studying the use of poly(dendrimers) for the fluorescence-based detection of explosive vapours. I then undertook my PhD at the Centre for Organic Photonics & Electronics – UQ, in which I investigated the use of luminescent materials for the rapid and sensitive detection of low volatility illicit street drugs. Now, I am working on the Hetero-print project (EP/R03480X/1) within the Adams and Skabara groups at the University of Glasgow.

Research interests

My scientific interests involve organic synthesis, organic optoelectronics, and designing custom laboratory equipment.
