Dr Khaled Parvez joined the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR), UWE Bristol as a visiting fellow in 2021. He also holds a position as a Research Associate at the University of Manchester with research focusing on the production of various two-dimensional materials based inks and inkjet printing of high performance flexible electronics.
He has more than 14 years of industry and academic experience since he graduated in Chemistry in 2005. He has completed his MSc from Chungju National University, South Korea focusing on developing polymer-based electrolytes for dye-sensitized solar cells. He obtained his PhD from Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Germany in 2014, on chemical exfoliation of graphene and their applications. During his PhD, he made significant contributions to scientific community by developing highly efficient catalysts for fuel cells and a novel class of all-solid-state graphene based micro-supercapacitors. The biggest achievement however, is leading the research on the electrochemical exfoliation of graphene, which can produce scalable, high-quality thin graphene. The exfoliation mechanism he proposed is currently being used as a model for other researchers. Several companies such as, Talga Resources and Sixonia Tech GmbH have adopted his works on graphene exfoliation for mass production and commercialization of graphene based materials.
After his PhD he joined BASF, Germany in leading a project to set-up a pilot plant for graphene production. In 2016 he joined at the University of Manchester where he is leading research projects on developing various water-based 2D materials inks for inkjet printing and high performance printed electronics for flexible and wearable technologies. He has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers that have been cited more than 9,000 times and h-index of 30. He also serves as an Editorial Board Member for MDPI journals ‘’Biosensors’’ and ‘’Materials’’.
