I'm interested in the characterization and manufacture of optoelectronic materials and devices. Prior to co-founding Agira Photonics in Boston MA (USA), I held a non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship in Condensed Matter Physics at Wolfson College, University of Oxford. At Oxford I joined the Advanced Functional Materials & Devices (AFMD) Group headed by Prof. Moritz Riede, where I helped build the group's new laboratory and vacuum deposition systems. I also developed and commissioned an endstation for the I07 beamline at Diamond Light Source (UK) that enabled in-situ, realtime diffraction studies of organic semiconductors during vacuum deposition. I have expertise in optoelectronic, x-ray, and neutron scattering characterization of organic materials.
