Erik is currently working towards a doctoral degree in Materials Science. His research focuses on using high-efficiency III-V semiconductors for artificial photosynthesis, and surface protection of photoelectrochemical devices. Prior to joining the group, he conducted research at MIT and the University of Konstanz on diffusion of nickel in silicon for applications in earth-abundant photovoltaics.
