Speaker Biography (Ursa Opara Krasovec)
Urša Opara Krašovec is a senior scientist working on the field of material science for more than 15 years. She received the Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Ljubljana in 1999. She was granted a postdoctoral Marie Curie Fellow (2001 - 2002) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, Freiburg, Germany on the topic of photoelectrochromic windows. With her position at the UL she has taken the lead on the setting up the technology for dye sensitized solar cells. Her recent work is focused on sol gel materials for solar energy applications (solar cells and smart windows) and printed electronics. She has co-authored more than 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals that were cited over 900-times.
