Personal profile

Research interests

The group is multidisciplinary with a focus within chemistry, and carries out research into the fundamental aspects of energy and electron transfer in a range of chemical systems including nanocrystals, conjugated polymers, and donor-acceptor systems both at the ensemble and single nanocrystal/assembly level. The nancrystal systems of interest include metal nanocrystals (plasmonics) as well as fluorescent quantum dots and polymers.
