Adam Kelly is a Marie Curie Research Fellow at CENIMAT|i3N where he works on printable triboelectric nanogenerators for energy harvesting applications.

He received his Ph.D in Experimental Physics from Trinity College Dublin in 2019 in the field of printed electronics which were primarily based on solution-processed two-dimensional materials. His work focused on the characterisation of two-dimensional materials from powder to device with the aim of elucidating the conditions under which the electrical characteristics of the printed devices are maximised.
