Ana Flavia obtained her BSc Degree in Chemistry from the University of São Paulo in 1996. After that, she joined the group of Prof. Marco-Aurelio De Paoli at University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Her Master and PhD thesis involved the study and application of polymer electrolytes in Dye Sensitized Solar Cells. Her PhD thesis was the first one in the area of Gratzel´s solar cells in Brazil. She obtained the Master and PhD degree in 1998 and 2001, respectively.


During her PhD, she joined the group of Prof. James R. Durrant at Imperial College in London, United Kingdom. During the "sandwich" program, she investigated the dynamics of dye sensitized solar cells using polymer electrolytes by transient absorption spectroscopy. After finishing her PhD, she returned to Durrant´s group, but this time to investigate charge recombination in organic solar cells by transient techniques. This post-doc had the collaboration of Prof. N. Serdar Sariciftci from Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria. In 2003, she returned to Brazil and joined the group of Prof. Henrique E. Toma at the University of São Paulo to apply supramolecular chemistry to Gratzel´s solar cells.


At the moment, Ana Flavia is Professor in the Chemistry Institute at UNICAMP. She has experience in the field of Chemistry, with emphasis in nanostructured materials and their application in solar energy conversion. The main research focuses on the development of perovskite solar cells, perovskite quantum materials and dense energy carriers (generation of solar fuels through photoelectrocatalytic systems using water, CO2 and other low-added values substrates).

She has published more than 145 papers, seven book chapters, one book and 3 patents. The Laboratório de Nanotecnologia e Energia Solar (LNES) was founded in 2005 and at the moment has 15 members between Post-docs, Master and PhD students and undergraduate students. The group has the leadership in dye sensitized, organic solar cells and perovskite solar research in Brazil and Latin America.
