Background and activities

I studied my MChem and PhD degrees in chemistry at the University of Warwick in the UK. My PhD topic was on tin-based halide-perovskite photovoltaics, primarily studying CsSnI3 and the use of additives and substituents to improve stability and modify optoelectronic behaviour. I have published four papers on this topic, and completed my PhD in 2017.

Selected papers from this topic:

I began my postdoctoral work at NTNU in 2018, studying the hydrothermal synthesis of hexagonal manganites, with a focus on in situ studies through synchrotron X-ray diffraction.
