In parallel , he is a tenured full professor in the university’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He holds a BSc/MSc, PHD and Dr habit degrees in physics from German universities. HIs research focus is on photovoltaic materials, devices and modules. His R&D work covers the full spectrum from fundamental materials research to the industrial evolution of advanced or novel PV technologies at the pilot line level and their transfer to industry. In his 31-year career in the PV sector he has (co)authored more than 450 papers (which have received more than 10,000 citations, h-index 45) and has been supervising more than 70 PhD students. He is an editor of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and an Editorial Board member of Progress in Photovoltaics and other scientific journals. In the 1990s he established and led the Silicon Photovoltaics Department at the Institute for Solar Energy Research (ISFH) in Hamelin, Germany. He then worked for 10 years inn Sydney, Australia as a professor for photovoltaics at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). In 2008 he joined NUS to establish SERIS, as the Deputy CEO and the Director of the Silicon PV Department. Since 2012 he serves as SERIS CEO. He is presently the Director of the institute’s Silicon Materials & Cells Cluster and the Novel PV Concepts Cluster.
