James joined the Imperial College physics department in October 2015 and is working on organic photovoltaics under the supervision of Dr Ji-Seon Kim in the Nanoanlysis group.

His project focusses on improving the stability of organic solar cells by identifying degradation mechanisms using Raman spectroscopy. The degradation of the material will be correlated with the change in solar cell efficiency and the results used to design more stable molecules for use in organic solar cells.
