Dr Sudha Mokkapati did her PhD on monolithic integration of compound semiconductor quantum dot based optoelectronic devices at the Australian National University. Following PhD, in 2008, she joined the Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems at the Australian National University as a post-doctoral researcher. In this position she developed photon management strategies for thin film solar cells based on amorphous Si, crystalline Si and III-V quantum-dot absorbers. She then worked as a Super Science Fellow and a Research Fellow, developing nanowire optoelectronic devices at the Research School of Physics and Engineering, Australian National University from 2012-2016. Dr. Mokkapati was a Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University from 2016 to early 2019. She joined Monash University in 2019. Her current research interests include semiconductor nano-photonics, nano-lasers and nanostructured solar cells.
