Dr Finn Purcell-Milton is a research fellow in Trinity College Dublin. He received his B.Sc in Chemistry from University College Dublin in 2007 and his M.Sc in Materials Chemistry from the University of Edinburgh in 2010, and his Ph.D in Chemistry in 2015 from Trinity College Dublin. His research interests are centrally concerned with quantum confined nanomaterials, particularly quantum dots and 2D materials, and their applications in a range of fields including luminescent solar concentrators, photovoltaic cells, chiral sensing and chiral separation. Recently, the development of heavy metal free quantum dots for these applications is of paramount concern.
In addition, the application of 2D nanomaterials now to chiral separation via the fabrication of a range of novel membrane composites has also been a recent area of focus.
