Personal Statement

I joined the Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design in 2018, where I've been leading the activity related to the discovery of new inorganic materials.

Most of our technologies are limited by the performance of materials, so it's critical to discover new materials to enable new transformative technologies. Researchers have been discovering materials for a long time, but it's generally a slow and unpredictable process, so I'm keen to develop new methods for materials discovery in a systematic fashion, so that we can accelerate our search for new materials with new physics and exciting new properties.
