Dr. Mahesh P. Suryawanshi is an ARC DECRA Fellow & Lecturer in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) at UNSW Sydney.
He graduated with a BSc (Physics) in 2008 from the Shivaji University, India, followed by an MSc in Physics (Energy Science) in 2010 where he was supervised by Prof. P. S. Patil, also at the Shivaji University, India. Always keen on contributing to the renewable energy field, he then joined for Ph. D. at Shivaji University in 2011 and moved to Chonnam National University, South Korea under 'Doctoral Exchange Program' from 2012 to 2015 to work on earth-abundant compounds for solar energy conversion applications under the supervision of Prof. Jin Hyeok Kim and Prof. A. V. Moholkar.
After graduating in 2015, he was then awarded by Brain Korea (BK) -21 Fellowship to continue his postdoctoral research work with Prof. Jin Hyeok Kim at Chonnam National University, South Korea. He started a solar fuels research subgroup with Prof. Kim to investigate earth-abundant photoelectrodes and catalysts for solar-driven hydrogen generation. In June 2019, he joined the SPREE, UNSW Sydney as a Postdoctoral Fellow to develop new PV materials as top cells for Si with A/Prof. Xiaojing Hao.
Starting January 2021, Mahesh took his ARC DECRA fellowship at SPREE, UNSW Sydney with a vision to establish Multifunctional NanoMaterials and Devices subgroup and foster international collaborations.Postdoctoral a grant that funds postdoctoral study or research More (Definitions, Synonyms, Translation)
