Dr Marion Wrackmeyer

Marion was born in Munich, Germany in 1982. After finishing school in 2001, she moved to Dresden to study chemistry at the Technical University of Dresden. She graduated with a Diploma degree in 2006. For her PhD, which she was awarded in July 2011, she joined the Institute for Applied Photophysics (IAPP) in Dresden at the beginning of 2007 under the supervision of Prof Karl Leo. In her PhD she concentrated on fluorenes and oligothiophenes for the application in small molecule Organic Solar-Cells. After a short period of postdoctoral research at the IAPP (October 2010 to December 2011), where she synthesised materials for self-assembled monolayers in an industry related project, she joined the group of Prof Mike Turner at the University of Manchester in January 2012 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate.

Her work in the OMIC group is focused on the synthesis of functional polymers for the application in OFET sensor devices.
