Sarwat is a PhD student and a member of the UCL - Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems (IPES). Prior to joining the Electronic and Photonic Nanomaterials group, Sarwat studied Chemistry with Study Abroad (McMaster University, Canada) at the University of Bristol, followed by two years of working as a device engineer at HP Labs, Bristol. Her PhD project is develop to fabrication processes of optoelectronic devices made from polymer encapsulated III-V semiconductor nanowires, where she has had the opportunity to work at the Australian National University for three months. She is joint supervised by Dr Ioannis Papakonstantinou (University College London) who oversees the simulation part of the project. Outside the lab, Sarwat enjoys knitting, going to gigs and driving her convertible.

Greg is a PhD student and a member of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC). Greg writes: My work focuses on the new class of metal halide perovskite solar cell materials, which have remarkably produced cells of over 22% efficiency after less than a decade of development and promise to be cheaper than silicon. I investigate device and interface physics; looking at energy loss mechanisms using contact measurements and photoluminescence spectroscopy. More simply, I perform electrical tests and study how the material responds to illumination. My work identifies energy loss mechanisms, investigates new device architectures, and aims to better describe the exact origin of the extremely promising properties of perovskite materials more generally.
