Chiara is enrolled in the Plastic Electronics Centre for Doctoral Training, where she works in Prof. Ji-Seon Kim's group. Her research is focused on Non-Fullerene-Acceptor-Based Organic Photovoltaics and Organic Photodetectors, investigating energetics, molecular conformation and stability in donor-acceptor blends and devices.

She is now in the second year of her PhD after completing the Master of Research in Plastic Electronics in September 2019. 

Chiara has previously studied in Italy, where she completed her Master's degree in 2018 at the University of Bologna with first-class honours with a Master's thesis on the Electronic Properties of Transition Metal Oxides for Applications in Organic Solar Cells
