Dr Kevin Rietwyk | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Dr Kevin Rietwyk

Post-doctoral Researcher, Research Fellow

Dr. Kevin Rietwyk concluded his PhD studies on the electronic properties of semiconductor surfaces at La Trobe University in 2014. He has since enjoyed a 3.5 year post-doctoral appointment at the Zaban laboratory in Bar-Ilan University in Israel, investigating new metal oxide compounds for photovoltaics before joining the Bach group. At Monash, Kevin is developing combinatorial tools that enable visualisation of the device performance and properties of mixed hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite compounds.

Centre Research Themes: 
1. Excitonic Systems for Solar Energy Conversion
