Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering,
City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Hong Kong
Mohammad Ismail Hossain, Ph.D., is presently carrying out his postdoctoral research as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Hong Kong. Dr. Hossain is also serving the department of Applied Physics of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), Hong Kong as a Research Associate. Besides, he supports Prof. Akhtar’s Photovoltaic group in the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Malaysia as a Research Associate. His current research focuses on perovskite-based high-efficiency solar cells, multispectral-image-sensors, metasurfaces, LEDs, Omnidirectional UV reflectors thin-film materials for optoelectronic device applications. He has authored more than 35 SCI journal articles, where some of his recent high-quality works are published in prestigious journals in the field, such as Nano Energy, Small Methods, Nano-Micro Letters, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, etc. His research outcomes are presented at almost all major scientific conferences (total: >28, including PVSEC, MRS, SPIE, PVSC, IEEE, Nanoenergy) in photovoltaic materials and energy research. He was awarded for both poster and oral presentations during the Nanoenergy conference in 2019.
Dr. Hossain has earned his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), Hong Kong. He received his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Jacobs University Bremen (JUB), Germany. He completed his bachelor’s degree at the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB). He was a Research Specialist in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of University of Connecticut (UCONN), USA. He has been affiliated as an Assistant Professor of the EEE department, AIUB (Currently On Leave). Before his academic career, he served the communication department of Radiant Corporation, Bangladesh as a Project Engineer.
