I am an experimental physicist and currently an academic staff and ARC Future Fellow at SMP. I have previously worked in the Physics department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA; University of St. Andrews, Scotland, UK; and Lund University, Lund, Sweden.

For the past 15 years, I have been specializing in the field of organic semiconductors. This field is highly multi-disciplinary, transcending the boundaries of physics, engineering and materials science. The key features of organic semiconductors include low cost, reduced environmental impact, and mechanical flexibility (e.g. flexible and bendable electronics). These features are not available in conventional semiconductors (e.g. Si, Ge). Multiple applications have emerged in important areas such as displays (e.g. OLED TV, phones), electronic circuitry and energy.
