Role in the Centre

Ngoc Duy Pham is a material scientist with more than five years of hands-on experience, specializing in design and fabrication of state-of-the-art perovskite optoelectronic devices. Within QUT’s Centre for Materials Science, he contributes to the project of “Advanced PV and radiation attenuation materials for space applications” which aims to pioneer robust new materials necessary for flexible solar cells that can work reliably under harsh conditions of outer space, by using advanced material design of light absorbing materials with tailored nanostructures and radiation coating materials.

Short Biography

Ngoc Duy Pham completed his PhD in October 2019 from Queensland University of Technology, investigating the fundamental science, chemistry and physics of perovskite semiconductors and their application to solar cells. After PhD graduation, he has been working at QUT as a postdoctoral researcher. His research since then has focused on development of inorganic metal halide semiconductor light absorbing materials towards improving stability of the resultant perovskite solar cells. He has published 20 journal articles with total citations of over 319, including one Highly Cited Paper on Web of Science, and an h-index of 8.
