This team of creative scientists and engineers is exploring new ways to develop applications of graphene and other 2D materials. Team leader A/Prof Rakesh Joshi is currently leading 5 industry-sponsored research projects on developing graphene-based products for industrial applications. A/Prof Joshi has more than $1.6 million of industry funding as Principal investigator (Lead Chief Investigator) and over $4 million as Chief Investigator (CI) on ARC projects. This team was the finalist (with Sydney Water) for NSW Water Award (Australian Water Association) in Research Excellence Category.
Group Leader Rakesh Joshi is an Associate Professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering. Before joining UNSW, Dr Joshi was a Marie Curie International Fellow with Nobel Laureate Sir Andre Geim at the University of Manchester. He has a PhD in Semiconductor Nanotechnology from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India. Joshi is among a select group of researchers who have been awarded each of the world’s most prestigious relevant International Research Fellowships; the JSPS Invitation Fellowship, the Humboldt Fellowship and the Marie Curie International Fellowship.
