Julie is a post-doctoral research fellow at ANU. She completed her B.Sc. in Physics and Engineering in Europe (Paris, Brest and Barcelona). She completed her MASc in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Nanotechnology) at the University of Waterloo (Canada) and her PhD in Electronics at the University of Montpellier (France) with a European Marie Curie scholarship. She has 6 years of experience in epitaxy, both in MBE and MOCVD. She also has experience in material characterization and microfabrication (clean room processing).

Researcher's projects

ARENA project

This project aims at developing multi-junction cells for efficient water splitting, in PV/PEC and PV-EC setups. We are interested in the epitaxial growth of metamorphic and lattice-matched multi-junction III-V semiconductor materials. We also support research on epitaxial lift-off and device development for solar cells and solar fuels generation applications.
