Head of Centre: prof. Tomáš Markvart, Ph.D.

Joint appointment at the Czech Technical University in Prague and at the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, University of Southampton.

Tom Markvart obtained BSc and PhD in Mathematical Physics from the University of Birmingham in 1974 and 1975, respectively. He came to Southampton in 1977 as a Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and later Engineering Materials. After brief periods at ONERA/CERT in Toulouse and Instituto de Energia Solar at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid he returned to Southampton as Head of Solar Energy Centre. In 1994, he was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering/EPSRC Clean Technology Fellowship, becoming Reader in 2002 and Professor of Energy Conversion in 2009. Read more...

Dr. Jaroslav Kuliček - WP3

Dr. Diego López Carballeira - WP1

Diego López Carballeira received his B. Sc. in Chemistry in 2012 from the university of Vigo (Uvigo). At the same university, under the supervision of Prof. Marcos Mandado Alonso and Prof. Ignacio Pérez Juste, he obtained his M.Sc (2014) on Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling focusing on the theoretical study of the mechanisms involved on SERS (Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering) adsorbed on bidimensional carbon surfaces.

From 2014 to 2018 he coursed his PhD at POLYMAT, Basque Centre for Macromolecular Design and Engineering supervised by Dr. Fernando Ruipérez and Prof. Aurelio Mateo-Alonso. His research was focused in the computational study of organic systems relevant in Materials Science, such as organic diradicals, with applications in optical devices and metal-free batteries.
