Jeremy is Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering who joined the PV Lab in August 2013. Motivated by the need to scale-up renewable energy technologies to mitigate climate change, he focuses on understanding how defects limit performance in emerging thin-film materials for PV. He performs equal parts fabrication, characterization, and modeling, and seeks to bridge existing gaps between theoretical models and experimental capabilities. Specific techniques he utilizes include quantum efficiency (QE) and time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL).
Jeremy received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Yale University in 2011, after which he worked as a Research Engineer for start-up solar company Caelux Corporation in Pasadena, CA, where he grew up. Outside the lab, Jeremy enjoys pursuits such as soccer, piano, games of all sorts, climbing, camping, and listening to radio podcasts.
