Brief Biography (English)

Dr Paradzah specialized in ultrafast transient absorption spectroscopy in his PhD studies, during which he studied energy transfer in semiconductors and plant light-harvesting complexes at femtosecond to nanosecond timescales. He has also studied defects in semiconductors using Deep Level Transient Absorption Spectroscopy during his MSc studies. Currently, he is working on hematite nanostructures (synthesis, structural and optical, photo-electrochemical characterizations, and femtosecond pump-probe spectroscopy) for water splitting applications.
