Ajay Pandey is a Vice Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellow in Medical and Healthcare Robotics at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He was awarded a PhD on the physics and models of plastic photovoltaic devices with mention tres honourable from Université d’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 a prestigious Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) Research Fellowship on Singlet Fission- a physical process that permits external quantum efficiency of photodetection to values > 100% at the University of Queensland. His previous appointments include postdoctoral researcher cum junior group leader in Organic Photovoltaics at the University of Queensland and a postdoctoral research fellow position in Color-selective image sensors for digital imaging and machine vision at School of Physics and Astronomy with Prof. Ifor Samuel at University of St Andrews, UK.
My research expertise is a combination of Electrical Engineering, Condensed Matter Physics, and Physical Chemistry, specifically related to the research problem of energy management in nano-structured optoelectronic devices. I have a strong record of publications in high quality academic journals and my research work in the domain of advanced optoelectronics has been supported by prestigious fellowship awards. Key areas of my current research activity include:
- 3D reconstruction of surgical scenes using depth sensing cameras for Medical Robotics. Honours and PhD Projects available!
- All Optical Interrogation of Neuronal Circuits.
- Energy Conversion and Energy Up-conversion in Excitonic Semiconductor Heterojunctions.
- Exciton recycling and Energy management in Organic and Hybrid Semiconductor Heterojunctions. Honours and PhD Projects available!
- Singlet Exciton Fission and Triplet Exciton Dynamics in Organic Optoelectronic Devices. PhD Projects available!
- Multispectral Photosensing for Machine Vision. Honours and PhD Projects available!
- Light-recharged Organic Batteries and Energy Storage at Nanoscale. Honours Projects available!
- Development of Advanced Device Architectures for Third Generation Photovoltaics. Honours and PhD Projects available!
