We research new methods of electricity generation, and more efficient electronics and communications, while addressing all aspects of sustainability.
Electronic devices, such as computers, mobile phones and data centres, account for a significant amount of the world's energy consumption.
We need electricity from renewable resources in order to allow advanced electronic devices to have a continued positive impact on society. We also need high-speed, low-power and efficient computing and communication.
Our research interests cover 3 main areas:
- solar cells and energy harvesting, including photovoltaic devices, photovoltaic systems, thermoelectric generators and radiative cooling
- mobile and automotive electronics, including lidar and beam steering light-emitting diodes, structural colour and photo-detectors
- devices for artificial intelligence, including neuromorphic computing, heterogeneous integration, 2D material-based transistors and flexible electronics
