Artistic and research interests

My research focuses on next generation solar devices that could prepared using easy manufacturing methods and cheap materials. Besides development of novel materials for flexible solar cells and upscaling the technology, I study the lifetime issues of these technologies and sustainability of the approaches. Regarding the latter topic, my research lies in utilizing abundant and renewable materials such as wood-derivatives. Overall, I am interested in how increase of renewable energy production changes the future energy systems.

I am a part of Biobased Colloids and Materials (BiCMat) group and serve as a docent in New Energy Technologies (NEW) group. I am working now my Academy Research Fellowship (2018-2023), which focuses on application of biomaterials in emerging solar technologies.
