Biography

Characterizing Polymer Surfaces to Optimize Insulator Performance & Characteristics

Dr. Hore obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Queen’s University and in Physics at the Royal Military College. He then became a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Oregon, studying solvent and surfactant structure using a variety of computational and spectroscopic techniques. He joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Victoria in 2006, where he develops advanced optical methods and complementary theory to resolve fine structural details of molecules adsorbed at the solid-liquid interface, with special interest in influence of water on interfacial polymer structure. Through collaboration with ASAsoft (Canada), he has been studying silicone surfaces in response to chemical, electrical and biological stresses
