Dr. Klepper is a senior adviser at Nordic Energy Research. She works with administration of research programmes within renewable energy in the Nordic countries and in the EU. She also works with dissemination of the research from these programs. Previously, she worked as a researcher at the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN) at the University of Oslo. She developed processes for and characterized novel silicon containing materials for energy technology using atomic layer deposition (ALD). She has worked with thin films using ALD since 2001. An important part of the research has been to analyze and characterize the deposited materials using several analytical techniques, including investigation of thin film properties.
Dr. Klepper will share the vision and strategy that the Nordic region is undertaking in implementing renewable energies and the economic benefits of introducing clean technologies.
