1.Charge-transport and photoelectronic properties of solution-processed semiconductors
4.Flexible and printed optoelectronics
Dr Pecunia’s research on charge-transport physics in organic semiconductors, hybrid organic/metal-oxide systems, and solution-processed circuit integration has led to publications in high-impact journals such as Advanced Materials and Nature.
Dr Pecunia was selected for top international research projects, among which: Integration of Printed Electronics with Silicon for Smart Sensor Systems (iPESS), a flagship project of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Large-Area Electronics (2014-2016); the European Commission’s project on Printable Organic-Inorganic Transparent Semiconductor Devices (2011-2014); EPSRC-funded Charge Transport Physics in High-Mobility Organic Semiconductors (2009-2015).
Research Student Supervision:
Dr. Pecunia’s group welcomes highly motivated Master’s and PhD students with background in physics, chemistry, and material science. As the students will experience an international research environment, they are expected good command of the English language. The best students will be encouraged to conduct some of their research abroad, and will rely on Dr Pecunia’s close connections with top international research institutions (University of Cambridge (UK), University of Manchester (UK), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), among others).
