Cambridge Photon Technology is growing its technical team, and has recently hired two new chemists to accelerate the company’s research and product development.

Dr Anastasia Leventis joins CPT from the University of Cambridge, where she was a post-doctoral Research Associate specializing in the synthesis of conjugated polymers and small molecules for organic electronic devices.


Dr David So was previously a Balik Scientist, holder of a national fellowship for accelerating selected areas of research in the Philippines. Before this he worked on quantum-dot luminescent solar concentrators at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. “What attracted me to CPT,” he said, “was that it’s a small start-up with challenging but at the same time impactful and relevant goals. I find it exciting to be part of this team as it grows.”

The two will add greatly to the company’s existing strengths in synthesizing, testing and optimizing new optoelectronic materials, working together with CPT’s scientists and academic partners on products that will drastically improve silicon solar photovoltaic performance. CEO Claudio Marinelli said: “We welcome our new team members. Breadth of expertise and diversity of background are vital for creating exceptional teams. Anastasia and David both have a deep knowledge of their fields that will strengthen and accelerate our technology development and commercialisation efforts.”
