Yifan received her BSc in Chemistry from Imperial College London in 2015. She then continued to do a MRes in Nanomaterials with the project title ''The effect of electron transport layers on the stability of hybrid perovskite solar cells''. She has now started her PhD under the supervision of Prof. James Durrant and Dr Artem Bakulin. Her current research focuses on understanding the recombination losses in organic photovoltaics using ultrafast spectroscopy.
