Smart Villages Initiative, University of Cambridge


Michael Price is  Research Associate in the Smart Villages Initiative. Prior to this, he did his PhD at Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability in the Department of Physics on the physics of new types of solar cells and light emitting devices. His PhD was focused on the properties of semiconducting organic-inorganic perovskites, a fantastic new material that offers the potential for cheap, solution-processed solar panels with high efficiencies. He has attended a number of UN climate change negotiations and has a particular interest in how technology can help to improve rural electrification. He holds a BSc in theoretical physics from the University of Otago.
