Optoelectronic Materials and Device Spectroscopy Group (StranksLab)


Postdoctoral Researchers and Research Fellows

Miguel Anaya

Juliane Borchert


Miguel Anaya is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow and the Schlumberger Research Fellow at Darwin College, Cambridge. He previously held a Marie Curie Fellowship in the group. Started April 2018. More info here.

Juliane studied physics in Berlin, Groningen, Halle (Saale) and Oxford. Her PhD research in Oxford focused on the co-evaporation of perovskite thin-films for solar cells. Since June 2020 she is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Optoelectronics group in collaboration with AMOLF institute in Amsterdam.



Linsong Cui

Dengyang Guo


During his PhD and postdoc under the supervision of Prof. Chihaya Adachi and Prof. Richard Friend, respectively, Dr Linsong Cui focused on design and synthesis of advanced organic optoelectronic materials and devices,molecular photochemistry and photophysics, and organic semiconductor devices and physics. Now, his research focuses on halide perovskites for LEDs and detectors. Joined in August 2020.

Dengyang received his PhD under supervision of Dr. Tom J. Savenije from TUDelft, where he studied charge carrier dynamics in metal halide perovskites. His interest is on analyzing fundamental properties of optoelectronic materials and quantifying the connection between the material property and device performance. Started January 2021.



Simon Kahmann

Dominik Kubicki


 Simon’s work focuses on photophysics and optoelectronic properties of novel semiconductors. He received a double-doctorate from the University of Groningen and the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg under the supervision of Maria A. Loi and Christoph J. Brabec for his studies on nanomaterials for optoelectronic applications. He started working on tin-based and two-dimensional perovskites as a postdoc in Groningen. Started January 2021 as a DAAD research fellow. During his PhD with prof. Lyndon Emsley (EPFL, Switzerland), Dominik developed strategies to enhance the sensitivity of solid-state NMR, accelerating it by up to 5 orders of magnitude. As a postdoc at prof. Michael Grätzel's group he applied solid-state NMR to obtain atomic-level structural and dynamic information on lead halide perovskites. Started April 2019 as an MSCA Fellow.



Felix Lang

Satyawan Nagane

Felix is a Feodor Lynen Research Fellow from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation focusing on the investigation and understanding of radiation induced defects in hybrid perovskites. He received his Ph.D. in physics from the Technical University Berlin for his investigations on hybrid perovskites which he conducted at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin under supervision of Prof. N. H. Nickel. Started February 2019. Satya is a Newton International Fellow (The Royal Society). He obtained his PhD from National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), Pune, India in March 2017. His area of research is focused on design and synthesis of new hybrid perovskites for solar cells and LEDs. He is also working on development of different passivative layers to improve the performance of hybrid perovskite-based devices. Started August 2018.

Linfeng Pan

Bart Roose

Linfeng is a Early Postdoc. Mobility Fellow at StranksLab in the University of Cambridge. He obtained PhD degree from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) for his research on solar fuels with oxides under supervision of Prof. Anders Hagfeldt and Prof. Michael Grätzel. His research is focused on the anisotropic electronic and photophysics of semiconductors with an emphasis on oxides materials. Started November 2020.   Bart obtained a PhD (AMI, Switzerland) for his work on degradation and
aging mechanisms in perovskite solar cells. He continued this work as a
Newton International Fellow at the University of Cambridge. At
Strankslab he is working on tandem solar cells. Started February 2020.

Javad Shamsi

Beth Tennyson

Javad received his Ph.D. in NanoChemistry from Italian Institute of Technology in 2018, where he worked on colloidal synthesis of lead halide perovskite nanocrystals for optoelectronic applications under the advisement of Prof. Liberato Manna. He is now continuing as a postdoc to pursue his passion for the fundamental research in quantum confined perovskite nanocrystals at the University of Cambridge. Started June 2018.

Started August 2018.
