Ms Yvonne Hora

PhD Student

Ms Yvonne Hora is a PhD student at Monash University with Professor Udo Bach, working towards her passion in the area of perovskite solar cells. After completing her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at La Trobe University (Melbourne), Yvonne continues to be compassionate in developing cheap and robust solar cells for communities with limited to no access to modern energy. Using her previous knowledge of in-situ nanoparticle de/lithiation on metal electrodes of electrochemical microcells, Yvonne aims to identify the instability mechanisms of metal rear contact materials currently used in perovskite solar cells.
