He is working as a postdoctoral scientist at the design of Sustainable Energy Systems group at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands.
Mohammadreza Aghaei (Reza) received the M.Eng. degree in electrical engineering from the Tenaga National University, Malaysia, in 2013, and the PhD degree in electrica engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2016. He joined FraunhoferISE in Germany as visiting scholar in 2015. Moreover, he was a postdoctoral researcher and project manager in the division of photovoltaics in Fraunhofer ISE in 2017. He was admitted as a guest scientist in the Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK), Solar Energy Engineering (SEE), master program at the University of Freiburg in 2017. He was a postdoctoral scientist in Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), Competence Centre Thin Film and Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics Berlin (PVcomB) in 2018. During his research journey, he developed a new variation of CdZnTe/CIGS thin-film tandem solar cell, investigated novel methods in control and monitoring of PV systems, namely the autonomous monitoring approach.
Furthermore, he dealt with the Big Data Analytics (BDA) of outdoor measurement of the new PV technologies for energy yield assessment, degradation analysis, predictive monitoring. Currently, he is working as a postdoctoral scientist at the design of Sustainable Energy Systems group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Netherlands, to develop a new design and highly efficient concept of LSCPV devices in a built environment. He is a member of the International Energy Agency (IEA), PVPS program - Task 13 and International Solar Energy Society (ISES). Since 2019, he has been the chair of the working group 2: reliability and durability of PV in EU COST Action PEARL PV, and currently, he supports the WG2 as vice-chair.
