Dr Jess Wade is an Imperial College Research Fellow investigating spin selective processes in the Department of Materials.

She is particularly interested in improving the efficiency of optoelectronic devices, with a focus on chiral functional materials.

Jess has created over 2000 Wikipedia pages about women and other under-represented groups working in research. Many feature extremely notable scientists who previously did not have a Wikipedia presence at all.
