Dr. Md. Akhtaruzzaman is a Professor at the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) of The National University of Malaysia (@ Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), where he is leading the Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Solar Cells Unit at Solar Photovoltaics group. After receiving his BSc (Bachelor of Science) in 1996 and MSc (Master of Science) in 1998 in Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, he has been awarded the Japanese Government’s Monbukagakusho Scholarship and joined the Institute for Molecular Science (IMS) in Okazaki, Japan, where he obtained his PhD in March 2003 and studied on the design and synthesis of new organic heterocyclic compounds for EL device application. Thereafter, he worked in Japan for 12 years (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Fujifilm Fine Chemicals Co. Ltd., and Tohoku University), King Saud University in Saudi Arabia, and the University of Malaya (UM) in Malaysia. He has also been awarded one of the most prestigious fellowships by JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) in 2007-2009 at the Dept. of Electronics and Applied Physics of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. His areas of expertise are the rational design of organic/inorganic semiconductors, Nano-materials for various applications, including Dye-sensitized Solar cells (DSSCs), Perovskite thin film solar cell, Quatum dots-based Hybrid solar cells , Bulk-heterojunction Solar cells (BHJs), Light-Emitting Organic Field-effect Transistors (LE-OFETs), Organic Thin Film Transistors (OTFTs), Flexible Memory Devices, Nano-electronics and Electroluminescence devices, and has published over 170 papers, reviews in peer-reviewed journals, patents, and book and book chapters. He has also been serving as the project-leader as well as co-researcher for many government (Malaysia) and international (Saudi National Grant, Qatar Foundation, etc.) funded projects.
