Good (not fake) news...

Viva success

Congratulations to Dr David Poussin who successfully defended his PhD thesis today!

Thanks to Dr Nigel Johnson (University of Glasgow) and Dr Mark Oxorrow (Imperial) for being the examiners. Ahmed was co-supervised by Professor Natalie Stingelin (Georgia Tech) and funded through a H2020-ITN programme.. His PhD thesis is titled "Three dimensional photonics crystals for optoelectronic applications".

David undertook his viva online owing to the restrictions relating to COVID-19, no-one from the group was able to be with him in person but we were all there in spirit!

VIVA SUCESS

Congratulations to Dr Tian Du who successfully defended his PhD thesis today! Tian was co-supervised by Professor James Durrant (Chemistry) and was a member of the plastic electronics centre for doctoral training, his thesis is titled "Bulk and surface recombination losses in perovskite solar cells". 

Thanks to Professor Henry Snaith (Oxford) and Professor Said Haque (Imperial) for acting as the examiners during unusual examination conditions. Tian undertook his viva online, which given the current lockdown is becoming something of a norm at present, this of course meant no-one from the group was able to celebrate with Tian in person but everyone was certainly there in spirit.

Viva success

Congratulations to Dr Ahmed Ismail who successfully defended his PhD thesis today!

Thanks to Professor Demosthenes C. Koutsogeorgis (Nottingham Trent) and Professor Martin Heeney (Imperial) for being the examiners. Ahmed was co-supervised by Professor Thomas Anthopoulos (KAUST) and funded by a prestigious Egyptian Government Scholarship. His PhD thesis is titled "p-type metal oxides as interlayers in organic photovoltaics".

Ahmed undertook his viva online owing to the restrictions relating to COVID-19, no-one from the group was able to be with Ahmed in person but we were all there in spirit!

VIVA SUCESS

Congratulations to Dr Jonathan Ngiam who successfully defended his PhD thesis today! Jon was co-supervised by Dr David Payne (Materials) and Professor Natalie Stingelin (GaTech). His PhD thesis is titled "The relationships between surfaces, interfaces and bulk properties in organometallic halide materials".

Thanks to Dr Eddie Cussen (Sheffield) and Professor Stephen Skinner (Imperial) for being such professional examiners under the unusual examination conditions. Jon was the first student to take his PhD viva online owing to the restrictions relating to COVID-19, no-one from the group was able to be with Jon in person but we were all there in spirit!

Viva success

Congratulations to Dr Sinclair (Ryley) Ratnasingham who successfully defended his PhD thesis today! Ryley was initially supervised by Dr Russell inions (QMUL) who tragically passed away during his PhD. Supervision was taken over by Martyn with co-supervision from Dr Joe Briscoe (QMUL). Riley was a member of the plastic electronics centre for doctoral training, his thesis is titled "Aerosol processing of halide perovskites".

Thanks to Professor Trystan Watson(Swansea) and Dr David Payne (Imperial) for being the examiners.

VIVA SUCCESS

Congratulations to Dr Chieh-Ting Lin who successfully defended his PhD thesis today! Lin was co-supervised by Professor James Durrant (Chemistry). His thesis is titled "Enhancing the efficiency and stability of perovskite solar cells".

Thanks to Dr Chung Tsoi (Swansea) and Professor Martin Heeney (Imperial) for being the examiners.
