Research Project: Optimising Hybrid Perovskite Solar Cells Through Studies of Ultrafast Dynamics
Geoff Thornton and Helen Fielding (UCL), David Payne (Imperial)

Robin joins the CDT with an MEng in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Manchester. He completed a 12-month internship at Airbus UK, where the need for the aerospace industry to develop more environmentally-friendly energy sources motivated him to focus on renewable energy; for his Master’s project, Robin characterised and functionalised 2D materials for solar water splitting. His PhD research will centre on investigating the surface properties of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites using photoemission spectroscopies and scanning tunnelling microscopy.
