IEEE-PVSC Women in Photovoltaics (WiPV) Luncheon

RSVP for Luncheon is Full. You may still check at the door for available seating.

Join us in the IEEE-PVSC Women in Photovoltaics (WiPV) Luncheon on Thursday June 12th, from 12pm to 1:30pm.

Invited speaker: Dr. Becca Jones-Albertus.

Dr. Becca Jones-Albertus is the Program Manager for Photovoltaics Research and Development in the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Energy Technologies Office. Her team manages a multi-year portfolio of nearly $200 million in funding to advance solar cell efficiency and reliability and reduce cost, toward and beyond the goals of the SunShot Initiative.

Dr. Jones-Albertus has over a decade of experience working with solar cell materials and devices, from fundamental research and development to manufacturing. She began her research career looking at the strain response of amorphous silicon solar cells and low pressure deposition of organic solar cells. Her graduate research focused on electrical and optical characterization of group III-nitride alloys for photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical cells, including the discovery of p-type doping in InN. More recently, Dr. Jones-Albertus was the Characterization and Design Manager at Solar Junction, where she led work contributing to the development of the company's breakthrough dilute nitride solar cells, their two-time world record triple junction solar cells and then the successful transfer of that technology to a high volume manufacturing toolset. She has 34 technical publications and three patents.

Dr. Jones-Albertus graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with a B.S. in electrical engineering, and also holds a M.S. and Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Jones-Albertus will share her research and experience in the field of photovoltaics through a 45 minute presentation followed by a Q&A session. The event is open and free of cost to all PVSC attendees. Lunch will be provided.
