Funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science, this scholarship aims to support a student undertaking a PhD within the School of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, where the focus of their research is on using computer simulations to design better printable solar cells.

The ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science, in partnership with CSIRO, is working to make this a reality by combining a multidisciplinary research team with pilot-scale printing capabilities.

In this project, you will use computer simulations to study how crystalline films of metal halide perovskites form from solution and how they are affected by moisture. The insights gained from this work will help our experimental partners to obtain better control of device nanostructure and performance.
