Tucker Murrey is a 6th year PhD candidate in Material Science and Engineering. His research focuses on developing processing techniques and connecting structure-property relationships in organic semiconductors. He obtained his Bachelor of Science at the University of Washington in Material Science and Engineering-Nanoscience and Molecular Engineering. He has received competitive external funding to attend the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering, in addition to a 6-month National Science Foundation internship to work at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. As lab safety coordinator, he developed a safety procedure that has since been adopted by UC-Davis as a campus best practice.
