Edward completed his PhD investigating software based methods for generating new materials with potential applications in dye-sensitised solar cells. His work was purely computational and couples modern data-mining methods with machine learning. The project was collaboration with the ISIS facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Tessella.
Edward joined the MolE group from the University of Birmingham where he received an MSci in Physics. His final year project was a feasibility study into the potential uses of orbital angular momentum in microwaves to transfer data through computational simulations.
