Mr Julien Leoni

PhD Student

Julien is a postgraduate student at the University of Sydney currently undertaking a PhD with Dr Girish Lakwani. His research is about fabricating, characterizing and studying organic solar cells. He hopes to develop strategies to reduce charge carrier recombination, a phenomenon influencing device efficiency drastically, thereby providing design rules for highly efficient solar cells.
