Dr Leigh Sheppard

University of New South Wales

Leigh researches and develops sustainable energy solutions. He looks specifically at solar-hydrogen, a form of energy which is generated in a sustainable manner by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. Leigh has worked specifically on developing environmentally sustainable semiconductors used in the conversion of water into hydrogen and oxygen. Solar hydrogen is widely recognised as the fuel of the future, especially in countries like Australia where we have an abundance of sunlight. More

Leigh and his team moved to the University of Western Sydney in 2008 to further his research.
