Jacob Krich is an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa in the Department of Physics with a cross-appointment to the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
He is a theoretical condensed-matter physicist focusing on novel pathways to high-efficiency photovoltaics and nonlinear spectroscopies of organic systems.
He received his BA in Physics from Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, followed by an MMath from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He received his PhD in theoretical condensed-matter physics from Harvard University.
After receiving his PhD, he was a Ziff Fellow of the Harvard University Center for the Environment and a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard.
Dr. Krich joined the University of Ottawa in 2012 and received the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation Early Researcher Award for his contributions to the field of novel photovoltaics in 2018.
