Research Focus

Dr. Sofia Masi, (1987, M. Sc. in Chemistry 2011, PhD in Bio-Molecular Nanotechnologies-Physics 2016) is a postdoc researcher at the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló – UJI (Spain). In 2013 she joined University of Salento (Italy) as a PhD student, working on hybrid halide perovskite solar cells processing and characterization. In 2018 she joined the Group of Advanced Semiconductors (GAS) at the Institute of Advanced Materials (INAM) of UJI and her research activities is in the frame of an ERC-Consolidator Grant (Project: No-Limit, Principal Investigator: Prof. Iván Mora-Seró). Currently she is leading the laboratory of synthesis and fabrication of optoelectronic devices. Dr. Sofia Masi has built a solid experience on perovskite solar cells and light emitting diodes (LEDs) based on perovskite/organic additives and perovskite/inorganic quantum dots systems. Dr. Sofia Masi has an h-index of 20 with >40 papers and more than 1000 citations. She was granted a Juan de La Cierva Incorporación 2020 fellow and her current research activity is focused on the thermodynamic stabilization of unstable photoactive lead-free perovskite crystal phases, to improve the efficiency and the stability in ambient conditions of both the material and the devices, by chemi-structural interaction with inorganic quantum dots. Dr. Sofia Masi is also featured along with other outstanding women at the forefront of energy research in the related last published issue of ACS Energy Letters (ACS Energy Lett. 2021, 6, 58−68; https://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/acsenergylett.0c02398).
