Dr. Masaki Horie studied for master’s and PhD degrees at Tokyo Institute of Technology working on the synthesis of conjugated polymers and organometallic supramolecules. He was awarded his PhD in 2004 and moved to Institute of Physical and Chemical Research, RIKEN in Japan as a special postdoctoral researcher working on the crystal optics of supramolecules. In May 2007, he moved to the UK and joined the Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC) and the Materials Science Centre at the University of Manchester as a research associate. Whilst there he was working on a hybrid solar cell project utilizing conjugated polymers and inorganic quantum dots. In February 2010, he moved to Taiwan and joined the Department of Chemical Engineering, National Tsing Hua University as an Assistant Professor. In September 2014, He was promoted to an Associate Professor at the same department. Currently, his research interests are the synthesis of high-performance conjugated polymers via effective and environmentally friendly methods as well as supermolecular rotaxanes for use in organic opto-electronic devices.
