Pierre is originally from Quito, Ecuador. He recently completed his third year of undergraduate education in the Chemical Engineering program at Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in Mexico. He has worked in his home university on research projects related to materials science, such as the synthesis and characterization of biopolymers, and the production of coatings for metals by plasma-assisted thermochemical treatments. His research interest at the Kamat Laboratory is on understanding the degradation processes of organo-metal lead halide perovskite solar cells.
