Prof. Giulia Tagliabue

Alumni - Academic Faculty

Photovoltaics, Plasmonics



Prof Tagliabue joined the Atwater Group in April 2015 as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Fellow. Her research at Caltech focused on solar fuels and, in particular, the use of plasmonic nanostructures for hot-carriers generation. She graduated from ETH Zurich in 2014 in the group of Prof. Poulikakos. Her experimental work there was on plasmonic nanostructures for light absorption and concentration. As of January, 2019, she is an Assistant Professor at EPFL.
