Curriculum Vitae

About me:

I am a researcher and academic tutor in solar photovoltaics at the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra. I have been working in solar energy research since 2018. My main research interests are in applications of advanced characterization techniques for silicon photovoltaics, 2D materials and perovskite solar cells.

A short bio about myself:

Mr Thien Truong is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Australian National University in Canberra, Australia. He received his Degree of Engineer in Machinery Manufacturing Technology from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, Vietnam in 2015 and his Master of Science degree in Intelligent Micro Nano Systems from Konkuk University, South Korea in 2018. He submitted his PhD thesis for examination in June 2021. He is currently working on 2 ARENA projects: Advanced Silicon solar cells by DESIJN: a novel technology based on deposited silicon junctions, lead by Prof Daniel Macdonald and Physical vapour deposited passivating contacts for high efficiency silicon solar cells, lead by Dr Josua Stuckelberger.
