Dr Md. Anower Hossain

Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering

Dr. Md. Anower Hossain is a Postdoctoral 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 catalysts for anion exchange membrane fuel cells using the density functional theory modeling (DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The main focus of his academic research is understanding the properties of functional materials using first-principles atomistic simulations and experimental deposition followed by device fabrication. In particular, he studies the properties of semiconducting materials for application in photovoltaic applications, such as silicon solar cells, thin films solar cells, organic solar cells, and catalysts for fuel cell applications.
