Jay Patel

Fulford Junior Research Fellow; David Clarke EPSRC Fellow

My research interests are in hybrid inorganic-organic semiconductors, with a particular focus on photovoltaics.

I am currently the principal investigator of a research project to develop multi-junction perovskite solar cells with a high power-to-weight ratio at the National Thin Film Cluster Facility for Advanced Functional Materials, which is hosted by Oxford Physics. I am also a Teaching Volunteer at the International Rescue Committee where I give weekly science, maths and English classes to educate refugee children during the academic year.

In the past I have worked at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and University of Colorado Boulder, looking at the behaviour of perovskite photovoltaics in terrestrial and non-terrestrial environments. I obtained my DPhil in Physics from the University of Oxford after gaining a Masters in Chemistry from the University of Warwick.
