Lewis is a PhD student part of the PV Materials and Devices Research Group within the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology . He is supervised by Dr Jake Bowers, and his work is based around the industrially scalable and material efficient spray deposition of thin film solar cells.

Working specifically with the absorber material, whose benefits over other thin film absorbers are its earth-abundant and reduced-toxicity materials, CZTS is a strong contender for mass-production of affordable photovoltaics. With this ethos of sustainability in mind Lewis has also taken it upon himself to detoxify the solution that he sprays, with the aim of further removing obstacles preventing terra-watt scale PV deployment.

Before starting his PhD he studied Physics at Loughborough, gaining his BSc in 2015 with a dissertation using LabVIEW to autoscale temperature dependant transport measurements.
