Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge


Angus completed his MSc (Physics) degree at Durham University in 2017 during which he developed a new approach to the extraction and deposition of graphene and other two-dimensional materials for thin film applications.

In the following year he obtained an MRes (Distinction) degree as part of the Graphene CDT course at the University of Cambridge, during which he undertook a theoretical project using density functional theory to model the changes in the electronic and vibrational properties of layered materials as they approach the two-dimensional limit.

He then begun his current work in 2D/3D organo-metal hybrid perovskites for novel photovoltaic and battery applications under the joint supervision of Dr Felix Deschler in the Cavendish Laboratories and Professor Michael de Volder in the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM).

Angus is also involved in the Cambridge Chapter of the SPIE Photonics Society where he acts as treasurer.
