Olivia Ashton

Graduate Student

I was born and bred in Birmingham and graduated from Imperial College London in 2015 with an MSci in Chemistry. I am undertaking my DPhil in Physics as part of CDT-PV. Previously, I have completed a research project at the National University of Singapore and worked at the bar at Imperial College Union for 2 years alongside my undergraduate studies. In my spare time I love to read, scuba dive and travel.

I currently teach in the Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford as a Junior Demonstrator.

My project will focus on research associated with perovskite solar cells. The main aim will be to create perovskite nanocrystals which are stable to be used in photovoltaic and optoelectronic devices.
