Professor David McComb

Ohio State University


Professor & Ohio Research Scholar, Materials Science Engineering, Ohio State University
Director of the Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis, Ohio State University

David is an expert in the development and application of electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) as a sub-nanometer scale probe of chemistry, structure and bonding.  He has extensive experience in the application of EELS to the study of problems in solid-state chemistry and materials science. In recent years he has focused his attention on developing and implementing approaches to studying organic and molecular systems using these methods. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Materials, and until recently was co-director of the London Centre for Nanotechnology as well as Director of Research and Deputy Head of the Department of Materials at Imperial College London.
