I am currently a PhD student in chemistry with Associate professors David Huang and Tak Kee at the University of Adelaide. My research is focused on using molecular models to predict and understand the behaviour of organic semiconductors, with broad applications in the design of materials for novel electronic devices.

I did my undergraduate degree in chemistry, and after doing my masters research on triple-stranded DNA structures, I have turned my attention to a organic semiconductors. Specifically, my PhD research is focused on using and developing computational and theoretical models to better understand how carbon-based semiconducting materials assemble and behave under different conditions in the hope that this will lead to better predictive power and some design principles that can be used to develop more efficient materials with applications in many novel electronic devices. I have recently looked at whether all-atom models of organic polymers in solution are able to accurately predict the experimentally observed solubility behaviour of these materials, and am also interested in the use of coarse-grained models for predicting the behaviour of semiconductors at interfaces.
