Jenny Nelson
Jenny Nelson is a Royal Society Research Professor based in the Physics department at Imperial College London, where she has researched novel materials for solar energy conversion since 1989. Her current research is focussed on understanding structure-property relationships in molecular and hybrid semiconductor materials and how these relationships influence the mechanisms of solar energy conversion. This work combines basic experimental (electrical, spectroscopic and structural) measurements with simulation of materials and devices, with the aim of optimising the performance of solar cells and other devices. She also works with the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial to explore the mitigation potential of renewable energy technologies. She is an ISI Highly Cited Researcher and has published over 250 articles in peer reviewed journals, several book chapters and a book on the physics of solar cells. She holds a number of awards including the 2016 Institute of Physics Faraday medal and was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2014.
