Ms. Abigail R. Meyer

Colorado School of Mines, Denver, USA

My name is Abigail Meyer and I am a 4th year PhD candidate working at the Colorado School of Mines under Dr. Sumit Agarwal and at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory under Dr. Paul Stradins. I obtained my BS degree at Iowa State University in Chemical Engineering doing research on detection of E.Coli and Salmonella in free flowing bodies of water. My PhD now focuses on investigating degradation mechanisms in p-type Cz Si solar cells using spectroscopic techniques in order to gain an atomistic understanding of these mechanisms. Some of the spectroscopic techniques that I have focused on in my PhD include electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), and Raman spectroscopies.
