Samuel did his undergraduate in Imperial College London and graduated with a BEng, 1st Class Hon. in Materials Science. He graduated with his PhD in 2022. During his time at Caltech he worked under Space Solar Project Initiative, supporting it by developing selective frequency antireflective coatings as well as investigating the performance and space compatibility of lead halide perovskite-based and 2D van der Waal heterostructure-based solar cells. Sam is currently at IMRE in Singapore.
