Dr Hyojung Cha received her BSc in Polymer Science and Engineering at the Kyungpook National University and earned her PhD in Chemical Engineering from the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in South Korea. Since June 2015, she joined the group of Professor James R Durrant as a Research Associate in Chemistry at the Imperial College London. Her research interests are in correlation between photoactive layer morphology and charge generation and recombination processes in nonfullerene-based organic solar cells.
