Biography

Tristan is currently undertaking his PhD under the supervision of Dr Micaela Matta in the Department of Chemistry, King’s College London. Prior to this, Tristan obtained his integrated masters degree in Chemistry (MChem) at Swansea University. Tristan specialised in computational chemistry in his third and fourth year projects at Swansea where he researched graphene quantum dots.

Thesis title and abstract

Computational Design of Bioinspired Materials for Organic Bioelectronics

Bioinspired organic polymers have shown great potential in recent years in the area of bioelectronics. This research employs computational/in silico screening tools of bioinspired building blocks. It investigates their potential use as the next-generation materials for bioelectronics by leveraging sustainable design and predictors for aggregation/order, ionic and electronic transport properties.
