My research aims to improve renewable energy technologies through the use of new and better materials. I work both at a fundamental level to determine material properties but also investigate performance in applications including photovoltaics and hydrogen production.

My recent research is also summarized in this video:

2012 - PhD, Flinders University of South Australia, Carbon nanotube modified surfaces for water filtration, gene transfection and as electron sources.
2012-2014, Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Muenster (Germany), Photocatalytic hydrogen production using metal oxide coated carbon nanotubes.
2014-2015, Researcher in Business, PMB Defense Engineering and Flinders University, Submarine battery lifetime
2015-2017 ARC Resarch Associate, Flinders University, Carbon nanotube photovoltaics
2018 - Current, University of Adelaide Research Fellow, Nanostructured photocatalysts for energy conversion
