PhD Student in EECS
Madeleine Laitz received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Rochester in 2016 and her MRes in Chemistry from Imperial College London as a US-UK Fulbright Scholar in 2017. At Imperial, Madeleine developed graphene quantum dot catalysts, ultra-low platinum loading electrodes, and flexible architectures for PEM fuel cells. Madeleine joined the ONE lab in September 2017 as a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering and NSF graduate fellow. She studies the photophysics and optoelectronics of perovskites for solar cell applications, and is a core team member of the Tata-MIT GridEdge Solar program developing large-scale perovskite solar cell architectures.
