Matyas is a Postdoctoral Research Associate investigating materials for solar energy conversion in the Eslava Group: Applied Energy Materials. His current research is focused on understanding and tuning the properties (especially interfacial energetic and optoelectronic) of semiconducting materials used in photoelectrochemical cells to improve their water splitting device performance.
With his PhD research under the supervision of Prof Ji-Seon Kim at the Physics Department of Imperial College London he has contributed to the understanding of charge carrier recombination losses in perovskite-based solar cells giving important guidelines to increase device efficiencies closer to their theoretical limit.
After his PhD Matyas has also gained some useful experience in publishing, working as a Scientific Editor at Joule, a high impact sustainable energy journal.
