Dr Miaoqiang Lyu specialises in design and development of functional materials for energy generation, storage and applications

Dr. Miaoqiang Lyu's current research focuses on developing low-toxicity metal halide perovskites for solar energy conversion and optoelectronics. He also has abundant experiences working with industry for developing flexible thin-film batteries for Internet-of-Things devices. Dr Lyu obtained his PhD from The University of Queensland (UQ) in 2017, focusing on low-toxicity metal halide perovskites for solar energy conversion and optoelectronics. After that, he continued his research at UQ as a post-doctoral research fellow. His research has been interdisciplinary with a focus on fundamental research designing functional semiconducting nanomaterials for solving practical problems in solar energy generation and conversion. He has published around 80 peer-reviewed publications with a total citation of >8300 and an H-index 38 (Google Scholar). He has been awarded with two competitive fellowships, including Advance Queensland Fellowship and ARC DECRA Fellowship.


I`ve been involved in CRC-P printed battery project and Advance Queensland Fellowship in collaboration with Printed Energy Pty Ltd on developing primary and rechargeable thin-film batteries for Internet-of-Things devices. I also have collaborated with Reid Print Technologies supported by the HABS-EAIT ECR seeding grant on pressure insole research.
