Dr. Petra Cameron, email
Petra Cameron did her first degree in chemistry at
the University of Edinburgh(1996-2001). She then went on to do a
PhD in dye sensitized solar cells at the University of Bath
(2001-2004). Following graduation she spent two years as an
Alexander Von Humboldt research fellow at the Max Plank Institute
for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, before returning to Bath
as an RCUK research fellow in 2007. She became a tenured lecturer
in 2012 and a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in 2014. In
2009 she was awarded the Harrison-Meldola prize from the Royal
Society of Chemistry for her work on solar cells. She has
published papers with collaborators from the UK as well as
international collaborators from ten countries spanning Europe,
North and South America, New Zealand and China.
Ms. Wentao Deng, email
Wentao is working on self-assembled small molecules
for solar cells. These highly controlled self-assembly of low
molecular weight gelators (LMWG) have potential as the active
material in organic photovoltaics and perovskite solar cells.
Mr. Xingxing Liang, email
Xinxing Liang, got his bachelor's degree in 2010 and
master's degree in 2013 in Applied Chemistry from Central South
University, China. Then he worked for one year in China as a
patent examiner. Now he is a PhD student working on the
preparation of perovskite nanocrystals.
Mr. Peter Kubiak, email
Pete is a member of the multi-centre CDT in new and
sustainable photovoltaics and is carrying out res
arch into new absorber materials for solar cells.
Mr. Dominic Ferdani, email
Dominic graduated from Warwick University in 2014
with an MChem in Chemistry, this included a research project into
rhodium macrocyclic complexes. He became a PhD student at the Bath
based Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies CDT in 2014. He
is investigating the intrinsic properties of perovskites as well
as looking at methods of improving solar cell performance.
Mr. Samuel Pering, email
Sam joined the group in October 2015 after doing his
MChem project with us in 2014/15. His project focuses on the
characterization of solar cells.
Ms. Isabella Poli, email
Isabella got her bachelor's degree in Energy
Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. She then got her
master's degree in Sustainable Energy Technologies from TU Delft
University of Technology, the Netherlands, where she worked on
silicon-based PV technologies. She is now a member of the CDT
Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies, doing a PhD in the
PJC group at the University of Bath. Isabella is working on
perovskite solar cells, trying to achieve long term stability
under ambient condition and in water. She is aiming to use halide
perovskite based-devices for water splitting application.
We welcome academic visitors for up to four months depending on
available lab space.
We supervise 2-3 Masters students from the University of Bath every
Alumni: the group has been home to fantastic students over the
years (the first student joined in 2008).
