Chemistry

I am a DPhil student in Physical and Theoretical Chemistry in the group of Dr W. Barford, investigating optical properties in conjugated polymers. I am interested in the structure-property relations of one-dimensional organic semiconductors and how these materials can be improved for applications such as organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes.

I teach the first year Mathematics for Chemists course.
