He is a Principal Investigator in the Electronic Materials Program and a Project Leader in the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). He graduated from Harvard College in 1982 with an A.B. in Chemistry and from the University of Colorado in 1986 with a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Heidelberg, he joined Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 1989. His research interests include materials development and fundamental electronic and transport characteristics of photovoltaic materials, development of new photoanodes and photocathodes based on abundant elements, and the development of new oxide and sulfide based transparent conductors, and recently, he has organized energy related symposia at the Materials Research Society and American Physical Society annual meetings and has served on program committees for the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors and the Electronic Materials Conference. Dr. Ager has published over 230 papers in refereed journals.
