Research interests

Renewable energy, nanoelectronics and composite nanostructures, with a focus on the understanding of carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and graphene and the application of this in the development of new and improved devices and materials. Current work involves the development of new techniques in the processing of carbon nanotubes and their composites, the use of carbon nanotubes as active materials in solar cells and sensors, and the theoretical and experimental investigation of new and emerging carbon nanostructure-based energy generation and storage systems.
