Jeremy Poindexter

Jeremy joined the PV Lab in August 2013 as a Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering. Motivated by the need to scale up renewable energy technologies to mitigate climate change, he focused on understanding how defects limit performance in emerging thin-film materials for PV. He performed equal parts fabrication, characterization, and modeling, seeking to bridge existing gaps between theoretical models and experimental capabilities. Specific techniques he utilized 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. He currently works as a Process Development Engineer for MiaSolé. Outside the lab, Jeremy enjoys pursuits such as soccer, piano, games of all sorts, climbing, camping, and listening to radio podcasts.
