Pilar Espinet-González received her Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Physics from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), Spain, in 2005 and her Ph.D. in solar energy from the Solar Energy Institute (IES) – Technical University of Madrid (UPM) in 2012. Her research and dissertation were focused on the modeling, characterization, and reliability of concentrator multijunction solar cells. As a postdoc in the Atwater Group she explored the development of concentrator photovoltaic systems for terrestrial and space applications.
She is currently a senior research scientist at Aerospace Corportation.
