I have attained my MChem chemistry degree in 2012 at the University of Leicester. I have also spent a year as a formulation placement student at Chemtura Europe Ltd.

I am due to finish my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Troisi in 2016. I am currently mainly working on a computational project on photocatalysis.

In the past I have been working in the field of dye-sensitized solar cells. I have been involved in a study to predict n-type dye-sensitzed solar cells' efficiency based on organic dyes' electronic properties and statistical modelling (see Fig. 1 and Fig. 2). The resulting statistical model is useful for the discovery of new and efficient donor-pi-acceptor dyes.

I have also worked on the computation of injection and recombination rates of p-type dye-sensitized solar cells, as well as another project to show the correlation between donor-pi-acceptor characters and cell's efficiency.

I am open to job opportunities other than research work in academia. My phd has equipped me with basic skills in scripting, programming (fortran and matlab), statistical analysis, electronic structure calculations, among others.
