Research Project: Synthesis, Characterisation and Application of Electro- and Thermochromic Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Prepared by Hydrothermal and Solvothermal Synthesis

Supervisors: Dr. Peter Dunne (TCD), Dr. Robert Palgrave (UCL)

Eleanor graduated with a BA in Chemistry from Trinity College Dublin in 2023. For her final year research project, she worked with the Dunne group in TCD where she carried out research on the hydrothermal synthesis of quantum dots. Through this she garnered an interest in both green synthetic methods and materials characterisation. For her PhD, she will be working on the green synthesis of metal oxides and exploring how the physical properties and doping effect the materials’ behaviour and performance. The overall aim of her project is to establish green and easily processable routes towards device manufacture.

The CDT provided me with the tools to develop my career as a researcher and to participate in Outreach activities to broaden my skills. I really enjoyed my time as a student in the CDT and look forward to continuing collaborations with the research groups there.
