Please get in touch if you are interested in developing materials and applications relating to polymer processing, luminescent materials and sensors, see below for some topic ideas if you are self funded:

  • Polymer processing
  • Composite materials development
  • Development of novel materials and applications of phosphors
  • Development of luminescent carbon based nano-materials
  • Ionising radiation detectors
  • Sustainable Farming via polymer films / composites
  • Electron Microsopy of intrinsic UV emitting materials
  • Solution Processed OLED Devices
  • Development of full colour microdisplay

I you are an undergraduate student in chemical engineering and would like to get involved in working with my research group please get in touch with me.
