Winner of the 2021 EES Lectureship: Samuel Stranks

The 2021 EES Lectureship has been awarded to Dr Sam Stranks

Established in 2012, the Lectureship recognises and supports those at an early stage of their independent energy research career and is a platform for early career researchers to showcase their research to the wider scientific community.

Sam Stranks is an Assistant Professor in Energy in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. He leads a research group focusing on emerging semiconductors for low-cost electronics applications including solar cells, lighting, and detectors.

Sam is particularly renowned for his pioneering contributions to the field of halide perovskite optoelectronics, including understanding carrier recombination, complex structure-function relationships and device performance.

He is also a co-founder of Swift Solar, a start-up developing lightweight perovskite PV panels, and the non-profit Sustain/Ed, developing climate-focused teaching modules for primary school children.

Sam will receive a £1000 honorarium, will be given the opportunity to attend and present his research at a leading international online conference, and will be invited to contribute a Review-type article to EES.

Nominations for the 2022 EES Lectureship will open in September this year, and you can find out more about the EES Lectureship award and criteria on our website.

Congratulations to our winner, and we hope that you enjoy reading his work.
