Joseph Rozario: Graduate student of Department of ECE at Michigan Technological University


I am a second year graduate student of Electrical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. I am working as a Graduate Research Assistant (Winn fellow) under supervision of Dr. Joshua M. Pearce and have been an active member of Michigan Tech's Research Group in Open Sustainability Technology since fall 2012. Currently my research focus is the study of dispatch strategy of hydrogenated amorphous silicon photovoltaic thermal (PVT) systems in different atmospheric conditions. My previous research work include study of high efficiency InGaN multijunction/nanowire photovoltaic cells and growth of GaN epitaxial film using molecular beam epitaxy (see MBE Protocol: MOST for more info). Also I am appointed on a side project of developing an open-source PV-powered portable 3D-printer (see Mobile Solar Powered 3D Printer).
