Postdoctoral Researchers

Prachi Sharma

Prachi Sharma

Postdoctoral Researcher
RASEI
Prachi received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY. Her Ph.D. research was focused on the fabrication and characterization of high responsivity metal-oxide nanomaterials-based photodetectors for smart lighting applications. Before joining CU Boulder, she was with Intel as a process engineer working on photolithography tools. Her current research focuses on simulation and optimization of perovskite-based photovoltaic modules and synthesis and characterization of perovskite and organic thin...
