Karim T. Mukaddem
Karim is a third year PhD student. His working project title is "Application of Radial Distribution Functions to Diffraction and Imaging Data: Interfacial Structures, Amorphous and Disordered Materials". He works mainly on working electrodes of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells, analyzing them through novel synchrotron diffraction techniques. He is also developing software to enable advanced analysis of imaging data through image recognition.
Karim joins our group from Columbia University in the City of New York where he obtained a BSc in Materials Science & Engineering, where his research involved Atomic Pair Distribution Function analysis on synchrotron powder diffraction data.
