Dave Earl (Dr. David J. Earl)
Dave Earl was a graduate student in the group between October 2000 and 2003. Dave worked on the calculation of helical twisting powers of liquid crystalline chiral dopants and understanding how chirality is transmitted from one molecule to another.
Dave’s work was sponsored by Merck R&D, UK who have a particular interest in making new chiral dopant molecules for liquid crystal optoelectronic devices. After leaving the group, Dave took up a PDRA position at Rice University in the US.
