PhD Research Student

Date of start of studies 1 October 2014 Supervisors Prof Upul Wijayantha.

Originally from Sri Lanka, Subhashi came to Loughborough University to do her PhD degree in Chemistry in 2014 under the supervision of Prof Upul Wijayantha.

My research mainly focuses on preparation of novel transparent conducting oxide coatings by aerosol assisted nanoparticle suspension deposition followed by advanced post-treatment methods and testing them in photovoltaic and supercapacitors.

Currently, I am working on constructing novel functionalized organo-halide perovskite solar cell structures and develop tandem cell concepts on standard conducting substrates.
