‘Energy Harvesting Research Group’ is started in 2020 at the School of Physics and Astronomy as part of my UKRI-Future Leaders Fellowship. Previously I was a Marie-Curie Research Fellow at Organic Semiconductor Center at the School of Physics and Astronomy. My research expertise is on metal oxide thin films, optoelectronic devices especially thin-film solar cells such as Organic, and Hybrid Perovskites and structure-function-property correlation studies. Recently I have started to focus my research on the exciting application of these solar cells in ‘indoor light harvesting’ or ‘indoor Photovoltaics’.
