Alexander Romanov holds a PhD in synthetic organometallic and physical chemistry from A.N. Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds, Russian Academy of Sciences. One of his recent works on “High-performance coinage metal emitters for the Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology” was selected for the highly prestigious event “STEM for Britain” (the House of Commons, the UK by Parliamentary and Scientific Committee). He was a finalist and “One to Watch” prize winner from the Royal Society of Chemistry, Emerging Technologies Competition in London. He is one of the inventors of the Carbene Metal Amide (CMA) materials for highly energy-efficient OLEDs supported by three patent applications. Since January 2019, he is a Royal Society University Research Fellow working towards a cutting-edge chemical discovery of novel energy materials for various optoelectronic applications.
