Research interests

My background is in chemistry and physics within the field of optoelectronics, specifically the creation of materials allowing light and electronic energy to be interchanged. I work on the synthesis of different nanomaterials (organic/inorganic) for optoelectronic applications such as photovoltaics, light emitting diodes and luminescence solar concentrators.

I hope to make a new generation of devices with improved efficiency and functionality.
