I learnt the basic of energy conversion in my master degree from Germany. Renewable energy from sun and biomass attracted my interest. Couples of years ago, I did some research on the hydrogen production from biomass and waste as well as thin film solar cells production. I found that the development of solar cell technology is what I would like to learn more. After contacting Dr. Krumdieck for the opportunity to do a research on thin films production, I have joined in the AEMS group since 2006.
