Research Chemist

U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Timothy Duncan received his undergraduate degree in chemistry in 2000 from Haverford College, located just outside of Philadelphia. He attained his Ph.D. in physical/inorganic chemistry in 2006 from the University of Pennsylvania, where he synthesized and studied the photophysical properties of conjugated porphyrin arrays designed for medical diagnostic and optoelectronic applications under the advisorship of Professor Michael J. Therien. After graduation, he did a post-doc at the University of Pennsylvania in the lab of Professor So-Jung Park, where he built a single-molecule fluorescence imaging system in order to study the light emission properties of novel quantum-dot based bio-imaging agents and devised a new method to synthesize color-tunable conducting polymers. In 2009 he took a position within the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at the Institute of Food Safety and Health (IFSH), where he has initiated a research program aimed at investigating the safety of nanomaterials utilized in foods and food packaging.
