Jessica de la Perrelle is a PhD student at the University of Adelaide, under the supervision of A/Prof. Tak Kee and A/Prof. David Huang. Her previous education includes a Bachelor of Science with majors in Physics and Chemistry and a Master of Philosophy in ultrafast spectroscopy of organic semiconductors, also at the University of Adelaide. Her research interests focus on the photophysics of organic semiconductors for applications including organic photovoltaics and photocatalytic water splitting. She has experience in ultrafast laser spectroscopy including 2-dimensional electronic spectroscopy and transient absorption spectroscopy. She is also interested in computational techniques for analysis of spectroscopic data such as kinetic Monte Carlo and global target analysis.

My research focuses on the use of cutting-edge organic semiconductors for renewable energy applications such as organic photovolatics and photocatalytic hydrogen production. I use ultrafast laser spectroscopy to track the formation and transformation of excited states in these materials to determine future avenues for device optimisation.
