Dr Tian Zhang

Research Fellow

Dr. Tian Zhang is the researcher fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering. His research focuses on the fabrication and characterization of thin film semiconductor materials  for photovoltaic applications. At Monash University, he is investigating the vacuum-based thin film perovskite  materials and the electron/hole transport layers to realize the high efficiency tandem solar cells in perovskite/Si and perovskite/perovskite structures.
