Krishna Ghose

Postdoctoral Fellow
Research Associate

Dr Krishna Ghose is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Science at UNSW Canberra. His current research is focused towards the electronic and optical properties analysis of narrow bandgap semiconductors for photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical applications by first-principles method. Previously, he was appointed as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the school of Environmental and Life Sciences at The University of Newcastle in Australia, where he analysed the electronic structure of heterojunctions composed of carbon and boron-nitride nanotubes by first-principles method. He held PhD qualification in 2020 from The University of Newcastle and his PhD research focused on modelling and characterisation of perovskite oxides for high-temperature solar-to-fuel energy conversion by DFT methods. Having received a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Physics from University of Chittagong in Bangladesh, he obtained international joint Master degree from top three Universities in Europe (The University of Paris-Sud, France; The University of Genoa, Italy; The University of Adam Mickiewicz, Poland) under the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship offered by European Commission. Dr Ghose has expertise in interdisciplinary research fields of computational materials chemistry, advanced materials design for clean energy conversion, functional materials and their thermochemistry by DFT, and biomolecular simulation using ab-intio molecular dynamics techniques.
