Personal profile


Dr. Jincheol Kim is a distinguished researcher in the field of Photovoltaic Engineering. He earned his Bachelor's degree in 2008 and his Master's degree in 2011, both from Seoul National University. In 2018, he received his Ph.D. from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), where he conducted comprehensive research on high-performance, large-area perovskite photovoltaic (PV) devices. Following his graduation, he was awarded an Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) postdoctoral fellowship at UNSW, focusing on high-performance large-area perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells.

After completing his fellowship, Dr. Kim served as a Senior Researcher at the Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) from 2019 to 2022. While at KETI, he played a leading role in providing team leadership, specialising in advanced perovskite-Si PV tandem module research. Currently, Dr. Kim is a Research Fellow at Macquarie University, where he continues to delve into advanced applications and the commercialisation of perovskite photovoltaic devices.
