Kort presentation

Detta stycke finns inte på svenska, därför visas den engelska versionen.

As a researcher in the Division of Solar Cell Technology I divide my time between teaching Master courses in solar energy technologies and systems, and performing research on next-generation solar cell materials. My research concerns inorganic materials that could further enhance solar cell performance and lifetime while reducing costs and climate impacts. A special focus is on how we can unite theory and experimental methods and learn to design better materials from basic principles.
