I am an MRes student in computational solid state physics, looking into electronic structure properties of materials surfaces and interfaces, with applications in organic and perovskite optoelectronics. My work is under the supervision of Dr Theodoros Papadopoulos as part of the Condensed Matter and Nanoelectronics (CCMN) group.

In 2018-2021, I studied and completed my bachelor’s degree in Physics at the University of Chester. Since Oct. 2021, I am conducting research as part of a Masters by Research (MRes) programme at Chester, exploring surface and interface science under the supervision of Dr Theodoros Papadopoulos.

Research:

My aim is to broaden my computational skills and develop theoretical knowledge in advanced solid state physics of materials surfaces and interfaces, as well as electronic structure modelling, with applications in organic and perovskite optoelectronics. The main computational method of choice for my research is density functional theory to calculate electronic structure properties such as density of states and band structure. The calculations are conducted computationally involving VASP, which is a plain-wave electronic structure code. Overall, my research explores standard methodology used in nanoscale device physics, relevant to solar cells and light emitting diodes (LED’s).

Qualifications:

BSc in Physics from the University of Chester, U.K.
