I recently completed a PhD with the Plastic Electronics Centre for Doctoral Training working on charge and ionic transport in organic-inorganic perovskite semiconductors under the supervision of Prof Jenny Nelson and Dr Piers Barnes. I am continuing to develop both the Driftfusion simulation tool that I worked on during the PhD and new transient optoelectronic techniques for characterising perovskite solar cells.
