Biography

Murad uses lasers to understand how light and matter interact. His overarching aim is to be able to design new solar energy harvesting devices.

Murad completed his PhD at The University of Sydney in 2012. He was awarded an ARENA Postdoctoral Fellowship at UNSW from 2013-2016. He moved to The University of Cambridge after winning a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship (2016-2018), before returning to UNSW in 2018 when he was appointed as a Senior...view more

Areas of supervision

There are research projects available in the fields of:

  • Ultrafast (less than 1 millionth of 1 millionth of a second!) laser spectroscopy of solar energy materials
  • Development of ultrafast techniques for the study of interfaces
  • Application of laser spectroscopy to other next-gen materials

If you're interested in working with me please get in contact after completing the self-assessment at https://selfassessment.research.unsw.edu.au/

UNSW students: Send me an email or drop by my office and I'd be happy to discuss prospective projects.

Aust/NZ students (non-UNSW):  Drop me an email and check out the key dates for scholarship applications (https://research.unsw.edu.au/key-dates)

International students: Drop me an email and check out the UNSW website for international scholarships (https://research.unsw.edu.au/international-research-scholarships)
