Jenny Baker joined SPECIFIC in November 2014 as a Technology Transfer Fellow, focussing on the scale-up of solution processed solar photovoltaics, funded as part of the SUPERSOLAR project. By using printing technologies, such as screen printing and slot die coating, she is developing processes to enable large scale fabrication of perovskite based solar cells on rigid and flexible substrates.
Previously at the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating, Jenny completed her PhD thesis in 2014 titled; ‘Development and Characterisation of Graphene Ink Catalysts for use in Dye Sensitised Solar Cells’. This was a KESS funded studentship collaborating with Haydale, who are based in Ammanford and develop processing techniques for nano-carbons.
Prior to returning to academia to study to a PhD Jenny has over ten years’ experience in the production of titanium for aerospace applications, working for five years at Rolls-Royce. Jenny enjoys communicating science and engineering to a wider audience and is on the organising committee for Soapbox Science Swansea (http://soapboxscience.org/), an annual science communication event to bring science to the street (or beach!).
