Mahmood Alam Khan
Mahmood Alam Khan received B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemistry from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India, and earned his Ph.D. degree in chemical engineering from Chonbuk National University, Jeonju, Republic of Korea, on the synthesis characterization and application of TiO2 and ZnO nanostructured materials for photocatalytic application and solar energy conversions. Then he served as Postdoctoral Researcher at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and focused on the nanocatalyst for the hydrogen generation from water splitting and methane autothermal reactions. Subsequently he worked as Assistant Professor at Department of Display and Chemical Engineering, Yeungnam University, Gyeongsan, Republic of Korea, and taught various subjects in areas of solar energy, chemistry, and catalytic engineering. Later on he joined as a specially appointed Assistant Professor Research Center for Solar Energy Chemistry, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, and focused on flexible organic and hybrid photovoltaic research. He was a Visiting Researcher at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), Ulsan, Republic of Korea, and worked on quantum-dot-based hybrid solar cells. Recently he joined as a Scientist Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR, USA, working on inexpensive alternatives of photovoltaics. His research interests are in the area of solar energy and solar cells such as bulk heterojunction, organic, CZTS, CuInSe2, CdSe, and dye-sensitized solar cells.
