Personal profile


Dr. Mark A. Bissett obtained his BSc and PhD in Nanotechnology from Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia) in 2011. In 2012 he joined the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering in Kyushu University (Japan) as a postdoctoral researcher and in 2013 was appointed as a Research Assistant Professor. At the beginning of 2014 he joined the University of Manchester in the School of Chemistry as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, before moving to the School of Materials at the beginning of 2016. In November 2016 he was appointed as a Lecturer in Nanomaterials within the Department of Materials, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2019, and Reader in 2022.

His research group focuses on the formulation and integration of low-dimensional materials, particularly graphene and other 2D materials, into electrochemical energy storage applications as well as polymer nanocomposites. This includes the synthesis, functionalisation and characterisation of carbon nanotubes and novel two-dimensional materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides, and their integration into devices such as photovoltaics, flexible composites, and batteries/supercapacitors.
