Supervision and Teaching
Supervision

In my capacity as Principal Investigator of the Pecunia Group of Thin-Film Optoelectronics, I supervise the research activities of my team. My group consists of a mix of postdoctoral researchers, research assistants, postgraduate students, and undergraduate students with multidisciplinary background (physics, materials science, electronics engineering, chemistry) and researching in emerging, green, solution-processed semiconductors.

Status and prospects of lead-free perovskite photovoltaics
Oct 05, 2020
In recent years, lead-free perovskites have generated great excitement in the photovoltaics research arena as absorbers for environmentally-friendly and easy-to-fabricate photovoltaics. In their latest Perspective, Prof. Pecunia and collaborators discuss the status and prospects of this rapidly growing research area.
