Personal profile


Dowon Bae received his BSc and MSc (Honors) from the Russian State Technological University named after K.E. Tsiolkovsky (current - Moscow Aviation Institute). After research activities within solar cells at the LG Innotek (South Korea; 2008 – 2012), he joined the VILLUM Center for the Science of Sustainable Fuels and Chemicals at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where he conducted his PhD study and Postdoc under the supervision of Prof. Ib Chorkendorff. His research has focused on PEC (photoelectrochemical) device design for solar-fuel applications. From 2018 to 2020, he has worked as a Postdoc at the Delft University of Technology with LEaDing Fellowship (Marie-Curie Fellowship) support. He has held academic appointment as an Assistant Professor at Heriot-Watt University since August 2020. His research concerns PEC device design and rechargeable flow-battery systems.
