Welcome to my personal page!

My name is Thien Truong, from Binh Dinh, Vietnam.

I am a researcher in solar photovoltaics, currently at The Australian National University, Australia.

About me:

I have been working in solar energy research since 2018. My main research interests are in the applications of advanced characterization techniques and the fabrication of solar cells based on novel passivating contact technology for silicon photovoltaics, 2D materials,  perovskite, tandem, and IBC solar cells. 

A short bio about myself: 

Dr Thien Truong is currently a research fellow at the School of Engineering. Thien also serves as an Education/Student Activities Chair for the 2023 IEEE ACT Section ExCom, the 2023 IEEE Region 10 Symposium (TENSYMP), and Academic Representative for the 2022 CECS WHS Committee.

Thien received his Degree of Engineer in Machinery Manufacturing Technology from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, Vietnam, in 2015, a Master of Science degree in Intelligent Micro Nano Systems from Konkuk University, South Korea, in 2018, and a PhD in Engineering (photovoltaics) from ANU in 2022.
