Dr. Jaemin Lee

My name is Jaemin Lee, a Research Fellow working in the Hatton group in Chemistry, the University of Warwick. I was awarded my PhD in 2016 from the Graduate School of EEWS (Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability), Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (2019 QS World University Ranking 40 and QS Korean National Ranking 1). My PhD research focused on the development of stretchable metal electrodes and the optimisation of fabrication processes of optoelectronic devices as well as the chemical and interfacial engineering.
