Nigel Lucas obtained his BSc(Hons) and PhD from the Australian National University working on the synthesis and photophysical properties of organometallic materials. Following postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow, he returned to Australia in 2005 to take up an Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at The University of Sydney. In 2008 he moved to the Department of Chemistry, University of Otago where he is currently a Senior Lecturer.

Nigel’s research interests span the synthesis, structure and properties of carbon-rich molecular materials (such as PAHs/nanographenes, conjugated polymers and macrocycles), supramolecular chemistry and self-assembly, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, and crystallography.
