Summary

He received his BSc. in chemistry from the University of Essex in 1996. Followed by his MSc. (The control of morphology of precipitates from solution) in 1999 and his PhD. (Precipitation techniques and characterisation of rare earth element doped phosphor materials) in 2008 under the supervision of Professor Jack Silver at the University of Greenwich.

He has been a Research Fellow at Brunel University London since 2006. His research interests embrace the synthesis, characterisation, and applications of luminescent materials (phosphors), photonic band gap materials (PBG), nanofabrication of phosphor materials, bio-replication using Lepidoptera templates (butterflies and moths) and dye sensitised solar cells.
