Research Interests:

My research is centred around the design and synthesis of new semiconducting materials for organic electronic and bioelectronic applications with the aim of elucidating important structure-property relations and providing new tailored materials to advance the understanding and performance of organic electronic and bioelectronic devices such as organic solar cells, field-effect transistors and biosensors.
