Dr Elham Gholizadeh

Research Fellow

Elham joined Professor Trevor Smith and Ken Ghiggino in 2021 as a postdoctoral research fellow. She completed her PhD under supervision of Professor Timothy Schmidt at UNSW. During her PhD she was working on improving upconversion systems. She is interested in studying photophysics of exciton processes to find a method to improve solar cells efficiencies. She has also experience in Organic chemistry beside spectroscopy and data analysis. 

PhD, Chemistry, University of New South Wales
Postdoctral fellow at Melbourne university
Centre Research Themes: 
1. Excitonic Systems for Solar Energy Conversion
2. Control of Excitons
