About jpearce

I run the Michigan Tech Open Sustainability Technology or MOST research group, which specializes in solar photovoltaic technology from the materials to the devices and full systems. I also wrote the Open-Source Lab How to Build Your Own Hardware and Reduce Research Costs

I am interested in making technologies that drive sustainable development - open source appropriate technologies.
