 I am a Reader in the Department of Materials where I also hold the position of Director of Undergraduate Studies. Additionally I am closely involved with the Centre for Plastic Electronics at Imperial College London and the Centre for Doctoral Training in Plastic Electronic Materials (PE-CDT).

I'm proud to supervise a fabulous group of researchers here at Imperial, you can find out more about them on my personal website.

Some examples of recent work from my group and our collaborators:
