Lifu Tan is a Graphene CDT candidate who joined the NanoManufacturing group led by Dr Michael De Volder in 2020, focusing primarily on Photo-rechargeable energy storage devices using 2D Graphitic Carbon Nitride. The PhD project is co-supervised by Prof. Jeremy Baumberg and Prof. Clare Grey. His MRes year was finished at Cambridge Graphene Centre, during which he worked on graphene-polymer composites for ultrafast lasers and swelling behaviour in Silicon-graphene based Li-ion battery anodes. Prior to this, Lifu Tan graduated as the 2019 Top Graduate in BSc Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Manchester. He is a member of Queens’ College.
