Amanda Youssef

Amanda is a Ph.D. candidate in mechanical engineering. Her current work focuses on employing imaging techniques as well as microscopy techniques to investigate recombination active oxygen-related defects in silicon wafers. Amanda performed a three month internship at the new Total Gas, Renewables & Power segment in Paris, France where she worked on developing imaging and mapping capabilities to quantify the impact of non-homogeneous bulk defects in silicon solar cell material. Amanda was a visiting researcher for four months at Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany investigating swirl defects in silicon wafers. Amanda received her M.S. in mechanical engineering in 2014 from MIT. For her master’s thesis, she investigated the effect of growth parameters on tin sulfide thin films porosity using focused ion beam tomography. She received her Bachelor of Engineering in mechanical engineering from the Lebanese American University. Amanda is a recipient of the Fulbright scholarship in 2012.
