Research Interests

I’m studying charge carrier generation and separation in organic solar cells based on donor:non-fullerene-acceptor blends. These are probed using Time-Delayed Collection Field (TDCF) and Bias-Assisted Charge Extraction (BACE) experiments to investigate the effects on charge generation due to various factors, including ionization energy and quadrupole-moment offsets, excitation energy, and applied electric fields.
