Mushfika Baishakhi Upama

PhD Candidate [Photovoltaics & Renewable Energy Engineering], UNSW

I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2012. After graduation, I worked as a research engineer in the R&D Department (Power Transformer) at Energypac Engineering Ltd, Bangladesh, from 2012-2015. Then, I joined the School of Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) at UNSW, Australia, in February 2015, as a PhD student. I am currently working on the development of organic solar cells. I have co-authored 22 journal articles and 6 conference papers in the area of photovoltaics.
