Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile


Dennice Roberts is a researcher focused on synthesis and characterization of materials for renewable energy applications using low-cost and materials-by-design methods. Her work spans multiple research areas and is currently focused on: 1) development of low-cost growth methods for high efficiency III-V tandem solar cells, and 2) design and synthesis of metastable chalcogenide heterostructures for neuromorphic computing. She is specifically interested in kinetic trapping of novel structures and the the effects of surfaces and interfaces on the properties of energy-related material systems.
