Dylan Sherman BSc, LLB

DPhil Student


Dylan’s DPhil explores the design and engineering of MOF-tronic nanosheets: 3D Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) materials that derive functionality from tuneable electrical and optical properties. His doctorate studies are conducted under the auspices of the 2020 Australian BHP Sir John Monash Scholarship and an Oxford Clarendon Scholarship. Previously, Dylan graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Advanced) with the University Medal and First Class Honours having investigated redox-active multifunctional MOFs as a researcher in the University of Sydney Molecular Materials Group. Dylan also holds a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and has practised as a lawyer at Clayton Utz.
