PhD candidate


Sofia Apergi received her Master diploma in 2019, from the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens in Greece. Her diploma thesis focused on the computational studies of materials for photovoltaic applications using density functional theory (DFT).

She joined our group in September 2019 and She is currently working on the physics and chemistry of the interfaces between perovskite absorbers and charge transport layers using DFT and DFTB methods.
