I am currently studying a PhD in chemistry with Associate Professors Tak Kee and David Huang at the University of Adelaide. My research broadly encompasses studying photophysical processes in organic materials, for applications in renewable energy and novel electronics.

My undergraduate background was in chemistry and applied mathematics, and my research now broadly focuses on using ultrafast spectroscopy and computational techniques to study electronic processes in organic materials. More specifically, I have worked on projects involving investigating conjugated polymer nanoparticles for their use in organic light emitting diodes, and on using a polymer nanoparticle system as a unique way to study distance-dependence in singlet exciton fission. Recently, I have also been working on a project using coupled acene dimers to investigate geometric and morphological effects in singlet fission, with the aim to better understand how to use singlet fission to increase the efficiency of solar cells.
