Expertise: Developing materials for electronic devices such as LEDs, transistors and thermoelectric generators. The materials include organic semiconductors, carbon materials and halide perovskites, as well as self-assembled monolayers for the control of interfaces in devices. I have a particular interest in thermal measurements, controlling nanoscale morphology and self-assembly to tune functional properties.

Brief Biography

Dr Fenwick received his BA and MSci degrees in Experimental and Theoretical Physics from Jesus College, University of Cambridge in 2002. After graduation he worked as a Systems Engineer at BAE SYSTEMS until joining UCL for his PhD (2007) in near-field microscopy. His focus then shifted to the development of materials for organic electronic devices (OLEDs, transistors etc.) before moving to the Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (I.S.I.S.) at the University of Strasbourg.

Dr Fenwick started at Queen Mary in 2015 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow and proleptic Lecturer in Materials Science where his research is focused on materials for organic thermoelectric devices. In 2023 he was promoted to Reader.
