Overview

OverviewText1

  • I am currently an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the University of Melbourne working on the topic of self-organised materials for flexible electronics. I have been an ARENA Research Fellow (flow synthesis) and lead investigator on a number of organic solar cell projects including collaborative research programs with institutes in Germany and USA. I have broad experience in academic research having worked in ETH Zürich in the area of fullerene chemistry and at the University of Oxford on supramolecular host-guest chemistry. The core expertise of our group is in the design and synthesis of organic materials with applications in light harvesting and solar energy conversion.
