ADEPT Research Fellows

Gabriela Kissling
Gabriela Kissling
Gabriela Kissling, Research Fellow in Electrochemistry University of Southampton

Gabriela studied chemistry at the University of Bern in Switzerland. She moved to the University of Bristol where she obtained her PhD with Dr. David Fermín in 2011. She was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southampton from 2011-2014, before moving to Bath to work on deposition of characterisation of copper zinc tin sulfide solar cell materials. She returned to Southampton in 2016. Her work on the ADEPT programme invloves electrodeposition of binary and ternary alloys within micro and nanostructured substrates.

 

Andy Lodge
Andy Lodge
Andrew Lodge, Research Fellow in Chemistry, University of Southampton

Andrew graduated from the University of York with an MChem in Chemistry in 2010. He graduated from the University of Southampton with a Ph.D. in 2015 researching the electrochemical reduction of oxygen in room temperature ionic liquids for use in a lithium-air battery, working under Professor John Owen. He worked under Professor Andrew Hector as a postdoctoral researcher on the supercritical fluid electrodeposition project researching the electrochemical deposition of mesoporous silicas. He now works on the ADEPT project researching the deposition of mesoporous silicas in anodic alumina membranes.

 

Ashley Love

Ashley Love, Research Fellow in Chemistry, University of Nottingham

Ashley graduated from the University of Nottingham with an MSc in Chemistry in 2012. He received his PhD in 2017 from the University of Nottingham, researching critical phenomena in pores through the use of vibrational spectroscopy. In November 2016 Ashley joined the ADEPT project as a Research Associate, becoming a Research Fellow within the project in June 2017.

 

 

 

Lingcong Meng
Lingcong Meng
Lingcong Meng, Research Fellow in Electrochemistry, University of Southampton

Lingcong graduated from Central South University, China with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Materials Science in 2010 and 2012, with research focussed on exploiting CVD diamond growth and application in waste water treatment. He received his Ph.D. from Warwick electrochemistry and interface group, the University of Warwick in 2017, focusing on the fundamental electrochemistry of the boron doped diamond electrode. He then worked as a part-time research assistant in the same group investigating electrochemical detection of Arsenic in water before joining the ADEPT project in February 2017. He is currently working on the thermoelectric strand of the ADEPT project. 

 

Yasir Noori
Yasir Noori
Yasir Noori, Research Fellow in Nanoelectronics, University of Southampton

Yasir was awarded a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University of Dundee in 2013. He then moved to the University of Lancaster for his PhD studies in experimental quantum communications. His PhD work led to one patent, multiple high impact journal publications and conference awards. He then spent 1 year as a post-doctoral researcher developing GaAs high energy particle detectors for the ATLAS experiment. In May 2018, Yasir joined the ADEPT project as a research fellow to develop novel phase change memory and infrared detector technologies utilising his expertise in nano-fabrication and e-beam lithography. He is also highly experienced in molecular beam epitaxy, photonic device modelling and characterisation.

 

Simon Reeves
Simon Reeves
Simon Reeves, Research Fellow in Electrochemistry, University of Southampton

Simon received his MChem in Chemistry with Materials Chemistry and Industrial Experience in 2014 from the University of Edinburgh. Remaining at the University of Edinburgh, he was awarded his PhD in 2018 entitled: "Development of Electrochemical Sensing in Nuclear Pyroprocessing: A Study of the Cerium-Aluminium Binary System with Macro- and Microelectrodes". In 2018 he joined the ADEPT programme where his research focus is on binary and ternary compounds of p-block elements for infrared detection.

 

 

Samantha Soule
Samantha Soule
Samantha Soulé, Research Fellow in Chemistry, University of Southampton

Samantha received her Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry of Materials, University of Pau (UPPA), France in 2012. She then undertook a PhD at IPREM, at the University of PAU, exploring the synthesis and characterisation of hybrid Au@SiO2 nanomaterials for applications in nanomedicine. In 2016 she took a post as a postdoctoral research fellow focussing on the surface characterisation of all-solid-state lithium microbatteries. Samantha joined the ADEPT programme in November 2016, with a research focus on synthesis and grafting of mesoporous silica templates.

 

Wenjian Zhang
Wenjian Zhang
Wenjian Zhang, Research Fellow in Chemistry, University of Southampton

Dr Wenjian Zhang was awarded his PhD in 2005 from the University of Cardiff, with a thesis title of ‘Synthesis of small-ring benzannulated triphosphamacrocyles by template methods’. He has been working with Gill Reid at the University of Southampton since 2005, where his research covers main-group inorganic synthesis, with particular focus on halometallates for electrodeposition of p-block binary and ternary compounds.
