A centre of excellence providing the platform to support dynamic inter-disciplinary materials research, in collaboration with academia, research councils and industry professionals.

Queen Mary has a strong tradition of materials-based research. The creation of the Materials Research Institute (MRI) brings together a range of expertise within several Schools: Engineering and Materials, Physics and Astronomy, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.

Dr Joe Briscoe obtained his PhD from Cranfield University on the topic of quantum dot-sensitised ZnO nanorod solar cell. Following this he moved to Queen Mary where he is carrying out postdoctoral research into the use of nanoscale functional materials in energy harvesting, such as ZnO nanorods for piezoelectric energy harvesters, and ferroelectric photo-catalysts for solar powered conversion of carbon dioxide to fuels.
