Research Interests

I have a general experience in developing electronic and optoelectronic devices based on semiconducting thin-films. In 2010-2011, I worked with high performance transistors from III-V nanoscale membranes at the Javey research lab, EECS, UC Berkeley, CA. In 2011, I established the OPV group at SDU NanoSYD at the Mads Clausen Institute, University of Southern Denmark (SDU), where we work on improving the performance of organic and hybrid solar cells. In 2014, I was appointed Associate Professor at SDU, and the work in the OPV group have since then included a strong focus on interface layers and device stability, which are strongly interlinked topics (and bottlenecks) in organic and hybrid photovoltaics technology. In the group, we also work with device up-scaling through Roll-to-Roll production technology. Read more about our activities here
