Naresh completed his PhD from Monash University, Australia and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India in October 2018. He worked on developing a correlation between polymer morphology and charge carrier dynamics in organic solar cells during his PhD for which he received the 'best thesis' award. He has also received several awards including Nationals Photonics Fellowship and Monash Energy Materials and System Institute grant award during his research carrier. He currently has more than seven years of research experience in developing and characterising novel organic and inorganic semiconducting optoelectronic devices. Naresh’s current research with the centre involves developing novel solution-processed optoelectronic devices and understanding the charge carrier dynamics inside these devices.
