Saurav Limbu is enrolled into Plastic Electronics Centre Doctoral Training (PE-CDT) programme (1, 3 years: MRes, PhD) since 2015, under the supervision of Prof Ji-Seon Kim. He joined Imperial College in October 2011 as an undergraduate on Physics (MSci).

His current PhD project concerns with investigating molecular morphologies of organic semiconductors  to understand their impacts on opto-electronic device properties (like conductivities of organic diodes, efficiency and stability of organic solar cells).
