Angus Mathieson's research focusses on new devices and materials that can be used both to harvest and store solar energy - in order to provide new pathways towards a future based on sustainable, renewable energy. Angus has a combined expertise in semiconductor physics, optoelectronics, and electrochemistry and as such, works across multiple scientific departments at the University of Cambridge.

Angus' recent research investigates the effects of electrochemically inserting dopant species into new semiconductor materials such as halide perovskites. He has also recently published work on lithium ion batteries for energy storage and co-authored studies on photo-batteries - batteries that use sunlight to recharge.
