Dr. Jiantao Wang earned his B.Sc. and Ph.D. from Nankai University in 2017 and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2021, respectively. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow in University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with Prof. Jinsong Huang during 2021.08-2022.10 and North Carolina State University with Prof. Aram Amassian during 2022.11-2023.04. He is a materials chemist, working in the area of low-cost perovskite optoelectronic materials and devices. He is good at engineering solution-processable organic molecules and solar cells. Currently, He is interested in designing stable narrow- and wide- bandgap perovskite compositions and integrating them into tandem solar cells and modules that are the biggest battle fields for perovskite photovoltaics.

Research Interests

Perovskite solar cells; all-perovskite tandem solar cells; perovskite/Si tandem solar cells; tandem module.
