Biography

Dr Ajay Pandey was awarded a PhD in Physics from the University of Angers (France) with thesis titled ” Physics and Models of Plastic Photovoltaic Devices”. Currently, he is a Senior Lecturer in Robotics and Autonomous Systems at the School of Electrical Engineering and Robotics. Prior to his current appointment, he held prestigious fellowships including QUT-Vice Chancellor’s Senior Research Fellowship in Medical Robotics, and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) Research Fellowship in Next generation Photovoltaic Technology.

His research interests have the interdisciplinary mix of Photonics, Chemical Physics, Molecular Electronics, Computer Science and Robotics that are aimed at creating new technological solutions to interdisciplinary research problems. He leads a number of major research projects, including development and implementation of advanced sensing technology for applications in Neuroscience, Intelligent Bionics, Medical Robotics,  Energy up-conversion and Robotic Vision.  He is a Program Leader within QUT’s Centre for A Waste Free World and also serves as an Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports- a Springer Nature Group journal.

Dr Pandey supervises 11 PhD students, 1 M.Phil. student; he is unit coordinator of Master of Profession Engineering  and teaches Electronics to the undergraduate students in third year of engineering. He has published 85 peer- reviewed research publications and his work is consistently cited by top academic as well as industrial R&D labs.
