Mr Adam Surmiak

PhD Candidate, PhD Student

In 2017 Mr Maciej Adam Surmiak joined Udo Bach’s Research Group to continue his scientific career working in Advanced Photovoltaics Laboratory at Monash University in Melbourne and in 2018 joined as Affiliate PhD Student The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Flexible Electronics Laboratory. His PhD research topic focuses on high-throughput perovskite solar cell materials discovery. It positively impacts the emerging technology announced by the research world as a promising substitute of silicon solar cells.
Mr Surmiak wants to thank Monash University, Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics ( and Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science ( for funding his research, opportunities for collaborations and great support.
