Currículo Resumido

Killian Lobato graduated with a Physics degree in 2003 from the University of Bath, UK. Having been enticed into undertaking a PhD in the Chemistry department of the same institution to study the exciting dye-solar cell, he obtained his PhD in 2007. Having spent nearly 8 years abroad, he took up a post-doctoral position at the Uni. Lisbon to continue working on silicon growth techniques of solar cells.

As of December 2013, Killian Lobato is an Assistant Professor in the area of Energy Engineering and lectures courses on Solar PV and Solar resource, Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion, and Renewable Energy Systems.

Scientific Interests

His particular research interests are currently:

Metal oxides for perovskite solar cells;

Tunnel junctions for silicon-perovskite tandem solar cells;

Graphene based supercapacitors;

Laser annealing for CIGS solar cells;

Operation and Maintenance of Photovoltaic systems;

Solar resource in complex urban environments.
