Dr. Giulia Tagliabue


Photovoltaics, Plasmonics

Giulia joined the Atwater Group in April 2015 as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Fellow. She is working in the exciting field of solar fuels and in particular she is focusing on the use of plasmonic nanostructures for hot-carriers generation.
Giulia graduated at ETH Zurich in 2014 in the group of Prof. Poulikakos with an experimental work on plasmonic nanostructures for light absorption and concentration. Previously, with a thesis carried on at EPFL, she obtained her master degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Udine. During her bachelor and master studies she was also a student of Scuola Superiore, a complementary university program for talented students.
Clean energy generation and energy-saving issues are Giulia’s main research interest. In her free time she enjoys travelling and being out in nature especially in the mountains for hiking and climbing.
