I joined Newcastle University as a Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in 2014 and was promoted to Reader in Energy Materials in 2018. Prior to this I held a University of Nottingham Anne McLaren Research Fellowship and a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellowship. Research in my group focuses on solar cell and solar fuel devices that function at a molecular level and challenge the conventional solid-state photovoltaic technologies. My current ERC-funded project focuses on developing transparent p-type semiconductors for tandem solar cells and artificial photosynthesis. Molecular and semiconductor synthesis, device assembly and characterization are combined with fundamental studies on the photophysics and electrochemistry taking place in the devices.
