Jamie Thompson

Imperial College London


Research Project: Development and characterisation of photoelectrocatalytic devices for artificial photosynthesis and solar fuel production
Supervisors: Camille Petit  (Imperial), Bin Chen (NASA)

After graduating with a Chemistry degree from the University of Southampton, Jamie spent almost two years working at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, in close collaboration with Xerox PARC. His work now focuses on characterization and development of materials for performing artificial photosynthesis (conversion of carbon dioxide into oxygen and solar fuels), as part of an ongoing collaboration with NASA and PARC. He is working under the supervision of Professor James Durrant and hopes to develop aspects of printable life support systems for both terrestrial and off-planet applications. Jamie has specialist training in Transient Absorption Spectroscopy, Gas Chromatography, Raman Spectroscopy, Various Microscopy Techniques as well as vast experience in, 3D Printing, Inkjet Printing, and Rapid Prototyping.
