2D Semiconductors as Multifunctional Hole Transport Layers in Organic Photovoltaics


KAUST PI: Frederic Laquai


Christopher Petoukhoff received his PhD in 2017 from Rutgers University in Materials Science and Engineering. During his PhD, he was awarded with a Corning, Inc. fellowship, an NSF-IGERT traineeship, and an NSF-EAPSI-JSPS Summer fellowship. He transitioned to Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) as a postdoc in 2017 to undertake research on ultrafast spectroscopy of energy materials. Christopher’s research interests broadly include methods of enhancing organic photovoltaic (OPV) efficiencies using nanomaterials and nanophotonic structures.
