Jiaying Wu obtained her PhD in research on device advanced characterization and analysis of organic photovoltaics (OPVs) under the supervision of Prof. James Durrant. Since September 2018, she started working as a postdoctoral researcher in Durrant group continuing her research.

Her current research is focused on charge carrier dynamics using transient optoelectronic techniques, specifically transient photovoltage (TPV), transient photocurrent (TPC) and charge extraction (CE), to study the charge carrier transport and recombination mechanisms in optoelectronic devices.

Prior to beginning her PhD study, Jiaying obtained her MRes in Nanomaterial under the supervision of Prof.James Durrant and Dr Stoichko Dimitrov. Throughout this study, she gained experience in OPVs device fabrication, photoluminescence (PL) and transient absorption spectroscopies (TAS). Before that, Jiaying received her bachelor degree from the University of Electronics Science and Technology of China (UESTC).
