Alex finished his PhD in Physics (PE-CDT) under the supervision of Prof. Iain McCulloch in 2017. His work focused on the development of novel organic semiconductors for p- and n-type accumulation mode organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs).

Alex is currently a  Doctoral Prize Fellow (EPSRC) where he is working on the development of water based polymer batteries in the group of Prof. Jenny Nelson .
