Dr. Cooper joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at York University in 2018. He received his PhD and MSc from ETH Zurich in 2014 and 2010 respectively, and his BASc from the University of Toronto in 2008. His research at ETH focused on the development of novel optical concepts for concentrating photovoltaics, and new materials for solar fuel production through two-step thermochemical H2O and CO2 splitting. Prior to joining Lassonde, Dr. Cooper was a postdoc at MIT, where his research targeted the development of nanoporous materials with tailored optical and thermal properties for solar energy applications.
