Dr Harsh Bhatia
Harsh received his M.Sc. in Chemistry from Central University of Kerala, India in 2015. Later, he joined as a Junior Research Fellow and finally as Ph.D. research fellow under the supervision of Prof. Debdas Ray in 2016 at Shiv Nadar University, India. During Ph.D. his research was based to design, synthesize and understand the photophysical properties of purely organic persistent luminescence based room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) materials. Alongside, his research interest was to develop thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) based molecules and understanding the photophysics of simultaneous TADF and RTP from the single molecular systems. He completed his Ph.D. in October 2020 and then moved to University College London (UCL) in March 2021 as postdoctoral research assistant to work on the hybrid solar cell absorber materials.
Dr Lewis Cowen
After receiving his MChem in chemistry from the University of Huddersfield, Lewis joined UCL to conduct his PhD studies are centred around the development of high-performing pi-conjugated polymers with an emphasis on materials which can be used as the n-type semiconducting component in thermoelectric devices.
Currently Lewis is working on the development of self-healing organic semiconductors and their incorporation into skin wearable devices.
