Halide perovskite materials have attracted global attention due to their peculiar optoelectronic properties, that make them suitable for a range of optoelectronic devices such as solar cells, light emitting diodes, photodetectors, and more. There are, however, concerns regarding their toxicity, stability and scalability that may hinder the commercialization prospects of perovskite-based devices.
My research interests include processing of lead-based and lead-free perovskites with methods that can be compatible for upscaling and their application in photovoltaic devices, alongside their fundamental (spectroscopic) investigations.
