Ian Marius Peters

Ian Marius Peters is a research scientist in the PV lab and head of the team “accelerated systems development”. He is also an associate editor for the journal Solar Energy. He studied Physics at the Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg Germany, from which he received his degree in 2006, and his Ph.D in 2009. Between 2004 and 2011 he worked at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE). His activities here included establishing novel characterization methods for dye sensitized solar cells, developing advanced optical and photonic concepts for solar cells, and developing coupled wave-optical and electronic simulation procedures. In 2011 he joined the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) where he established and headed the PV Modelling and Simulation group. The purpose of this team was to integrated simulation methods over a large range of scales ranging from atomic and first principle calculations all the way to PV system predictions. Marius joined MIT in 2014. His research interests here include tandem solar cells, energy yield predictions, machine learning & AI, PV-IoT, and infrastructures with high levels of renewable energy adoption. He has published more than 200 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, in conference proceedings and as patents.
