Dr Valery Kozhevnikov

Associate Professor

Department: Applied Sciences

After his PhD (2000), in synthetic organic chemistry at Urals State University, Ekaterinburg, Dr Valery N. Kozhevnikov chose the area of luminescent materials to further his career and has already successfully taken part in many interdisciplinary projects. He took several postdoctoral fellowships: firstly an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship at the Universität Regensburg in the group of Professor Burkhard König, (luminescent chemosensors), followed by EU Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowship in the group of Professor Duncan W. Bruce at York University (phosphorescent liquid crystals) and later in the group of Professor Martin Bryce at Durham University (phosphorescent iridium(III) cyclometallated complexes). In September 2009 he was appointed as a lecturer at Northumbria University and in 2012 was promoted to a Senior Lecturer. He is beginning to establish his own independent research group working in the area of luminescent metal complexes. His current research is focused on design of new phosphorescent metal complexes by exploiting concepts of supramolecular chemistry, and is funded by Northumbria university, EPSRC and industrial partners.
