Juanita Hidalgo

Juanita Hidalgo is a School of Engineering Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow whose research is focused on materials for photovoltaic and other optoelectronic applications for sustainable energy. As a doctoral candidate, Hidalgo studied hybrid halide perovskite thin films, which are of interest for use in solar cells, and developed deep expertise in the structure at the surface and bulk of lead halide perovskites using different in-situ X-ray scattering techniques. This work yielded valuable new insights into perovskite solar cells and will have a notable impact on efforts to commercialize this emerging solar cell technology. In her postdoc research, she will apply her expertise in in-situ X-ray characterization to the exploration of other electrochemical materials and interface systems relevant to sustainable energy.
