Doctor of Philosophy (University of Angers)

Ajay Pandey is a Senior Lecturer in Robotics and Autonomous Systems at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He completed his PhD in Physics on Organic Optoelectronics with mention tres honourable from University of Angers, France. He holds a Master of Technology (M. Tech.) degree in Laser Science & Applications and a Master of Science (M. Sc.) degree in Physics with specialisation in Atomic, Molecular and Laser Spectroscopy. Prior to his current appointment, he held prestigious fellowships including QUT-Vice Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellowship in Medical Robotics and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) Research Fellowship in Singlet Fission at the University of Queensland (UQ). He worked as a postdoc on EPSRC funded collaborative project on next generation digital camera technology for machine vision (between University of Oxford and University of St Andrews, UK ) and NIRAP funded project between UQ and NREL on organic photovoltaics.
His research interest has the interdisciplinary mix of Photonics, Chemical Physics, Molecular Electronics, Neuroscience and Robotics. His work is consistently cited by top academic as well as industrial R&D labs. He has published >50 research articles on topics linked to photo detection, energy conversion and energy up-converted electroluminescence that have attracted >1500 citations (source Google Scholar; https://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=xLA_Xr8AAAAJ&hl=en).

He leads an interdisciplinary research group at QUT that specialises in technological implementation of advanced materials for applications in Neuroscience, Intelligent Bionics, Medical Robotics, Soft Robotics, Energy conversion and Night Vision.  He also serves as an Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports- a Springer Nature Group journal.
