Head of Perovskite and Novel Photovoltaic Technologies Group, Green Energy Park (IRESEN/ UM6P), Morocco.
Dr Dounya Barrit obtained a Ph.D in Material Science and Engineering from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Thuwal, Saudia Arabia. She also received a Master of Science Degree in Sustainable Energy Management and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering and Management from Al Akhawayn University of Ifrane, Morocco. Dr Barrit worked extensively on developing processing-structure-property-performance relationships in hybrid perovskites and her research interest focus on bridging the lack of understanding in the liquid-to-solid phase transformation process during two-step deposition of hybrid perovskites and using this knowledge for improving the thin film quality for efficient solar cells. Presently, she is joining her expertise on the characterization of semiconductors' materials, thin films deposition techniques, in situ investigation of phase transformation processes and perovskite solar cells to the amazing facilities at the Green Energy Park (GEP)/ Institut de Recherche en Energie Solaire et Energies Nouvelles (IRESEN) as the Head of Perovskite and Novel Photovoltaic Technologies Group.
