Dr. Asa Asadollahbaik is a postdoctoral researcher in SPA group. She is working on enhancing the efficiency of NMR spectroscopy by means of optical and photonic methods and techniques. She has a Ph.D. from University of Southampton, UK from the Computational Engineering and Design group, awarded in 2012. Her Ph.D. thesis was on the Computational and Experimental Studies of Biomimetic Antireflective Structures for solar cell applications. She then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology Group, University of Southampton, UK on the fabrication of Anti-symmetric MSM photodetectors (funded by EPSRC, UK) for two years. In 2014, she returned to Iran and worked as a part-time lecturer at the Islamic Azad University, Rasht Branch, where she taught M.Sc. Modules for Electronic Engineering Course as well as supervised M.Sc. Thesis on Simulation of Perovskite Solar cells. During her time in Iran, she also worked as a head of technical in a business development company in the field of Combined Cycle Power Plants. In 2016, she returned to the field of research and started working in SPA group, in the Institute of Microstructure Technology in KIT.
Her interests and expertise lies in the field of optics and photonics, to be used in conjunction with other micro- and nano-machined systems to enhance the efficiency and capabilities of such systems.
