Daniel Newbrook is a current PhD student in the Sustainable Electronic Technologies research group.


Research interests

  • Thermoelectric characterisation of thin film materials including Seebeck coefficient, electrical conductivitiy, and thermal conductivity
  • Improving thermoelectric performance by introducing low dimensional effects in 2D material systems
  • Thermoelectric generator device optimisation by using simulation and mathematical modelling
