Thomas is a PhD student in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Plastic Electronics supervised by Professor John de Mello and Professor Martin Heeney. Thomas received a first class MSci degree in Chemistry in 2011 from Imperial College London followed by an MRes (distinction) in Plastic Electronics in 2012.
He works on the synthesis of metal and semiconductor nanoparticles using novel flow reactor technology. He is particularly interested in metal nanowires for the replacement of indium tin oxide as the transparent conducting electrode in organic photovoltaic applications.
