Professor Xiaojing Hao, ARC Future Fellow, FAIP, School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering, UNSW

Prof Xiaojing Hao obtained her PhD in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering of UNSW in 2010, and currently the full Professor (tenured), ARC future Fellow at UNSW. Prof Hao has focused her research on low-cost, high-efficiency thin film solar cells and tandem solar cells for more than ten years, researching on various energy materials, initially using Si, and then earth-abundant compound semiconductor materials such as chalcogenides for both solar photovoltaic and solar fuel applications. Prof Hao now leads a strong group in the above areas, achieving a number of efficiency records on emerging thin film solar cells. Prof Hao has published 166 peer-reviewed journal papers, including publications in Nature Energy, Energy and Environmental Science, with several awards for her research excellence. She was the recipient of Inaugural Australian Renewable Energy Agency Postdoc Fellow, previous ARC DECRA, inaugural Sciential Fellow at UNSW. She was awarded a number of prestigious national prizes, including 2020 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science: Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year, 2021 Australian Academy of Science Pawsey Medal.
