Cyrus has spent the last five years at U.C. Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) in pursuit of a new low cost photovoltaic technology using metal sulfides. Leveraging his knowledge in both the natural and social sciences, Cyrus' research covers both exhaustible resource economics and the aqueous chemistry of nanoparticles. Presently he continues his work in this area of photovoltaic materials but is also collaborating with other LBNL scientists to leverage his approach to explore new and innovative materials for battery storage.
