I am a device physicist. I specialise in engineering solution-processable materials and their devices and systems for energy, optoelectronic, and electronic applications. Though this class of materials are versatile, functional, and not expensive, they are, however, messy and disordered, hence performing poorly.
Challenges in achieving adequate performance from solution-grown devices often lie in ineffective charge percolation pathways by a variety of loss mechanisms. My approach to device engineering is to utilise bottom-up strategies at the molecular level by exploring interactions that govern structural formation and molecular ordering to facilitate better charge transport within materials and at their interfaces.
