Biography

Dr. Mark A. Bissett obtained his BSc and PhD in Nanotechnology from Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia) in 2011. In 2012 he joined the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering in Kyushu University (Japan) as a postdoctoral researcher and in 2013 was appointed as a Research Assistant Professor. At the beginning of 2014 he joined the University of Manchester in the School of Chemistry as a Research Associate before moving to the School of Materials at the beginning of 2016. In November 2016 he was appointed as a Lecturer in Nanomaterials within the School of Materials. His research interests are related to the development of materials for applications ranging from electrochemical energy storage to nanocomposites. This includes the synthesis, functionalisation and characterisation of carbon nanotubes and novel two-dimensional materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides, and their integration into devices such as photovoltaics, flexible composites, and electrochemical energy storage.
