Dr. ir. Christos Trompoukis  (Postdoctoral Researcher)

This person worked in the group from 2016 till 2019.

Affiliation: Ghent University - KU Leuven University
Department of Information Technology
Address: Technologiepark
Zwijnaarde 15
9052 Gent
Research Area: Solar cells and solar water splitting for hydrogen fuel
Promotor: Roel Baets
Christos received in 2008 his B.Sc in Physics from the University of Athens in Greece and, in 2010 his M.Sc in Physics from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
During his Ph.D. he was part of imec's solar cell group where he was working on photonic nanostructures for advanced light trapping in silicon solar cells.
In 2015 he received his Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science from KU Leuven and started investigating solar hydrogen fuel cells as a postdoctoral researcher between KU Leuven's surface chemistry and catalysis group and UGent's Photonics group.
Since October 2016 he has been working under an FWO postdoctoral mandate.
