S.S.T. Husein PhD (Sebastian)

Impact Development + Program Manager, Centre for Energy Innovation

About Me

Sebastian Husein develops multidisciplinary programs targeting societal challenges related to the energy transition. He works within the Centre for Energy Innovation, connecting the expertise of the UT research community to industry, local municipalities, and other stakeholders. He is part of Strategic Business Development (SBD) department that facilitates researchers in building collaborations from idea to execution. Within SBD, he oversees the energy portfolio, where topics include: Sustainable ICT, Energy Storage, Digitalization of Energy Systems, Photovoltaics.
Sebastian earned his Ph.D. in 2020 from Arizona State University in the United States with his thesis, "Enhanced Carrier Mobility in Hydrogenated and Amorphous Transparent Conducting Oxides." 
With his technical background in semiconductors for photovoltaic devices, he links academic vision with industry expertise to effectively position resources for energy transition challenges.
