Andrew completed his undergraduate studies in the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College London, joining the McCulloch research group to complete his MSci Chemistry degree. He decided to stay on to complete a Ph.D under the supervision of Prof. Iain McCulloch, further developing a range of organic semiconductors for photovoltaic applications. Since receiving his doctorate, Andrew has become an EPSRC Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry.  His research interests mainly lie in the design and characterization of organic semiconducting materials for energy and sensing applications.
