Research Interests

My research is broadly focused on the area of spectroscopy and photophysics of organic molecules for optoelectronic and photonic applications. These cover materials for OLEDs, OPV, antimicrobial surfaces, sensors, and imaging among other topics. More specifically, I am currently working with TADF small molecules and polymers, heavy-metal complexes, RT-phosphorescence in metal-free organic emitters.
