Samantha Hood is currently a Research Assistant in Photovoltaic Materials Modelling in the Department of Materials at Imperial College. She joined Imperial in April 2018 after her PhD at the University of Queensland, Australia. Prior to this she graduated from the University of Queensland with a First Class Honours degree in Physics.
In 2017, Samantha was recognised as an “Australian Science Superhero” by Australia’s Chief Scientist for her work in photovoltaic modelling as well as for her passion for science communication and advocating for women in STEM.
