Dr. Hakan Bildirir is a post-doctoral researcher in the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Department who focuses on developing novel materials to be used for green, sustainable, and alternative energy storage. Particularly, he performs the syntheses and characterisations of functional organic compounds to be used in molecular solar thermal energy storage and photon upconversion systems. Briefly, the former is applied to store the solar energy in the form of heat while latter helps to collect and convert photons more efficiently for light-to-energy related applications.
