2013 - PhD in Chemistry and Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland
2008 - MChem (Chemistry), Oxford University
Dr Jackson is an internationally trained chemist with academic and industrial experience in materials science. At Oxford University, he studied mechanisms of C-H bond activation and organometallic catalysis, which allowed him to also do research at Kyoto University. After working in industry, developing novel methods for synthesizing reagents, he entered the doctoral program at the University of Queensland, studying at the Centre for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE). His research at COPE focused on the synthesis and characterization of nanocrystal/organic composites and optoelectronic applications of these materials. He also helped develop novel macromolecules for organic light-emitting diodes and nanocrystalline catalysts for water-splitting.
Dr Jackson has authored a paper published in Macromolecules and presented research at the International Conference on Emerging Advanced Nanomaterials 2012.
Bringing with him his expertise in chemistry and materials science, Dr Jackson joined Edanz Group’s in-house editorial team in 2013.
