Register here to join us at the annual IEEE-PVSC Women in Photovoltaics (WiPV) Luncheon.
Time: Thursday June 9th, from 12pm to 1:30pm.
Location: Ballroom 201 at the Oregon Convention Center, Portland, OR.
Invited speaker: Professor Kylie Catchpole, Associate Professor, Australian National University
Kylie Catchpole is Associate Professor at the Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems in the Research School of Engineering at the Australian National University. Assoc. Prof. Catchpole's research focuses on using new materials and nanotechnology to improve solar cells. Her work on plasmonic solar cells was named as one of the top 10 emerging technologies in 2010 by MIT Technology Review, and in 2013 she was awarded a Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. In 2015 she was awarded the John Booker Medal for Engineering Science from the Australian Academy of Science. She has over 90 publications and her work has also been featured in the news sections of Science magazine and The Economist.
Assoc. Prof. Catchpole graduated with a BSc majoring in physics from the Australian National University, winning a university medal. She continued on to complete her PhD at ANU focusing on thin crystalline solar cells. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of New South Wales for several years, and her interest in nanophotonics and light trapping began at that time. She spent a year at the FOM Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam before returning to ANU in 2008.
Assoc. Prof. Catchpole will share her research and experience in the field of photovoltaics through a 35 minute presentation followed by a Q&A session. The event is open and free of cost to all PVSC attendees. Lunch will be provided.
