Dr. Md. Anower Hossain is a Postdoctoral Research fellow in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering at the University of New South Wales. He completed his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the National University of Singapore. At UNSW, he has been involved in the co-supervision of Ph.D. students in passivation contact materials for silicon solar cells, and fuel cell catalysts. The main focus of his academic research is understanding the properties of functional materials using both the first-principles atomistic simulations (DFT and MD), and experimental synthesis of materials followed by device fabrication and characterisation. In particular, he studies the properties of semiconducting materials for application in photovoltaic applications, such as silicon solar cells, thin film solar cells, organic solar cells, perovskite solar cells, and fuel cell catalysts to generate and use hydrogen to meet Australia's National Hydrogen Strategy.
