Dr Jenny Barnes
BSc PhD Lond
Having studied at a local comprehensive school, I went to Imperial College in London to study Physics at degree level. I then stayed on at Imperial to do a PhD and further research into solar cells, with a couple of months spent at The Electrotechnical Laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan during this time. I next worked in industry for over 10 years on optoelectronic devices; semiconductor lasers and light emitting diodes based in GaAs and InGaN. I returned to academia in 2008 when I started tutoring at The Queen’s College. I now also do outreach work for the Physics Department in addition to my tutorial role in the College.
