Ke Deng is a second year Ph.D. student currently developing advanced materials characterization tools to relate structure to photovoltaic function for dye-sensitized solar cells. Specifically, state-of-the-art reflectometry methods will be applied, via a collaborative project with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
Ke Deng earned his M.Phil. in Nuclear Energy from University of Cambridge, M.Sc. in Systems Engineering and Engineering Management from The Chinese University of Hong Kong and B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Prior to his Ph.D. study, he took up a research associate position with Prof. Jian Lu at City University of Hong Kong, where he worked on the development of high-performance energy absorption structures based on the structure optimization and material enhancement, the design and development of nano- and surface modified material for its integration in energy application, and the preparation of a position paper related to nuclear energy for Hong Kong Academy of Engineering Sciences. Ke Deng also has two years power industry experience at China Resources Power and China General Nuclear Power, and is a member of Hong Kong Nuclear Society.
