Tom Hopper

Postdoctoral Scholar, Materials Science and Engineering
Tom seeks to fast track the development of new optoelectronic materials and devices by elucidating their properties at the most fundamental level. During his doctoral research and subsequent EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship at Imperial College London, Tom played a pioneering role in the design and construction of femtosecond optical control experiments, and applied them to pinpoint efficiency-limiting processes in emerging photovoltaic systems based on organic, hybrid and nanoscale materials.

As a TomKat Postdoctoral Fellow in Sustainable Energy in the Lindenberg Group, Tom will deploy state-of-the-art ultrafast optical and structural probes at Stanford and SLAC to visualize and manipulate energy transport in novel materials systems made from low-dimensional semiconductors.


PhD, Imperial College London, Physical Chemistry (2020)
MChem, Newcastle University, Chemistry (2016)
