Employment experience:

2023 – Now: Research Fellow (UNSW)


2019 – 2022: Doctor of Philosophy in Material Sciences (Grenoble-Alpes University, France)

2014 – 2019: Master in Engineering Physics (Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Toulouse, France)

Research interests:

  • Semiconductor sciences and engineering for photovoltaics

  • Advanced characterisation of solar devices and their related components  

Why is your research important? 

Photovoltaic (PV) systems are primed to make a significant impact on addressing the pressing climate change crisis our society is facing today. There is a concerted effort all around the world to enhance the efficiency of these systems in capturing solar energy and converting it into electricity. Reliable characterisation techniques, and notably luminescence-based techniques are playing a crucial role in this effort by helping us understand what factors hinder solar device performance or their large-scale deployment. By highlighting these limitations, these techniques have the potential to steer the development and the large-scale deployment of highly efficient solar cells.

What do you like about research?

One of my main driving forces in life is learning new things about our world. Regarding this, research does a really good job!

What do you like to do when you are not saving the world?

Experiencing the beauty of nature while hiking or running in the wild, experiencing human body wonders in practicing martial arts, and reading some good sci-fi novel.
