Carolin M. Sutter-Fella received her Ph.D. from ETH Zürich, Switzerland, in 2014, where she worked in Prof. Ayodhya N. Tiwari’s laboratory for Thin Films and Photovoltaics. Later in 2014, she joined the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley as a postdoctoral researcher working on a novel materials growth platform with Prof. Ali Javey. Currently, she is a postdoc in the Chemical Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, and a Swiss National Science Foundation Fellow, supervised by Dr. Ian Sharp. Her interests lie in the synthesis, characterization, and functionalization of inorganic and hybrid thin film semiconductors, and in the photon-matter interactions to understand charge carrier transport and recombination in these material systems. Carolin’s ultimate goal is to contribute to an accelerated transition towards novel electronic materials for scalable, high efficiency, and low cost energy generation and utilization.
