Personal profile


To harvest the energy that comes from something as big as the sun, we need to start from something as small as atoms...

Research profile

As part of the Computational Materials Physics group of Shuxia Tao, Sofia's work revolves around perovskite solar cells. Specifically, she makes use of computational methods, in order to study the surfaces and interfaces of materials that are present in these devices. The goal is to reveal the physical processes that govern the operation of perovskite solar cells and to find ways to improve them.

Academic background

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 TU/e 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.
