Research Interests

​I am interested to explore new dimensions of solar cells including organic, inorganic, and hybrid solar cells. My interests have driven me to study the in-situ processes of solar cell fabrications to study in depth the phase transformations occurring during the processes. Currently, my research is based on lead halide perovskite solar cells and I am studying their phase transformation during spin coating and doctor blading and heat treatments after that. I would like to combine the inorganic technology like CIGS/CZTS with hybrid technology like perovskite.
