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.
