I recently moved to Stanford University to explore novel applications for organic electronic/ionic mixed conductors including energy storage devices and sensors.
During my Postdoc in the group of Jenny Nelson, I was working on the design of novel electrode materials for water based energy storage devices. Our recent work about the design and evaluation of conjugated polymers for electrochemical energy storage in aqueous electrolytes was published in Energy & Environmental Science (article, press-release). I am grateful for the support I received from the EPSRC (Doctoral Prize Fellowship).
During my PhD at Imperial College London under the supervisor of Prof. Iain McCulloch (Department of Chemistry), I developed and synthesised novel materials for the field of organic bioelectronics and particular focused on the design of n-type polymers for accumulation mode Organic Electrochemical Transistors (OECTs).
