My Research Interest
Perovskites are one of the top candidates for next-generation solar cells to overcome the worlds growing energy needs. While the fields is still young it has seen a surge in power conversion efficiency, surpassing 20% in about 10 years. That being said there is still much to discover about this material and much to improve.
The main focus of my research are 2D perovskites - layered materials of organic and inorganic moieties - which are known to help boost the stability of the perovskite material. However, much is still unexplored about the fundamental properties of these materials, especially their charge-carrier transport properties. Because of this lack of insight one often has to find a balance between gained stability and forfeited device efficiency. I hope to understand these materials in more depth to help overcome this conflict.
