I use lasers to understand how light and matter interact. My overarching aim is to be able to design new solar energy harvesting devices.
I completed his PhD at The University of Sydney in 2012. After this, I was awarded an ARENA Postdoctoral Fellowship at UNSW from 2013-2016. I moved to The University of Cambridge after winning a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship (2016-2018), before returning to UNSW in 2018 when I was appointed as a Senior Lecturer. I currently lead a research group with the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering.
