The word 'Appropedia' comes from 'Appropriate' and...?
I have recently graduated with a Master’s of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) in mechanical and materials engineering with a focus in photovoltaics from Queen’s University.
I received my B.Sc. Honours in chemical engineering in the environmental stream at Queen’s. [[InGaN photovoltaics in the Queen's Applied Sustainabilty Group|My research]] focused on the III-V semiconductor indium gallium nitride (InGaN) for use in photovoltaics. Additional projects include: a technical and economic analysis for a First Nations community to become completely solar powered; and a successful push to make Queen's University deploy rooftop and ground-mounted solar PV arrays.

'''The completed manuscript thesis entitled "Optical Characterization of Indium Gallium Nitride for Application in High-Efficiency Solar Photovoltaic Cells" is on hold until papers are published'''
*Solar PV potential, benefits
*Unique properties of InGaN (varying band gap with composition), its promise as a semiconducting material for PV, multi-junction solar cells
*Summary of previous InGaN work
*Procedures and equipment used for characterization of the films using:
:*Solar simulator - photoconductivity
*chapters of manuscript thesis
*Explain characterization results and relate them to advantages/disadvantages for use in PV cells
*Cover any lingering problems/difficulties with creating an InGaN cell
