Michael Saliba's core research area is perovskite-based solar cell development, an inexpensive and easily produced alternative to traditional silicon technology. In particular, he has helped to develop material structures for photovoltaics and his work has resulted in many high-calibre publications and patent developments. Saliba studied mathematics and physics in Stuttgart, earned his doctorate in physics at Oxford and has researched at Stanford and in Fribourg, Switzerland. He is involved in a project in the DFG Priority Programme "Perovskite semiconductors: From fundamental properties to devices" and is a member of the Global Young Academy.
