Dr. Golibjon Berdiyorov received his PhD in physics from University of Antwerp, Belgium, in 2007. He conducted postdoctoral research in Belgium and UK in condensed matter physics for following 6 years, before joining King Fahd University Saudi Arabia. He has a wide-ranging experience in theoretical studies on the electronic and optical properties of different molecular systems and low dimensional materials. His current research interest is in the field of material science with a focus on predicting new materials for organic/inorganic photovoltaics, energy storage devices and membranes for water desalination. He combines Monte Carlo simulation method with molecular dynamics approach to obtain optimized structures and predict their structural and thermal stability. For predicting optical, electronic and transport properties of the materials, he uses DFT calculations in combination with nonequilibrium Green’s functional formalism. He has published more than 60 research articles in high impact factor journals, which have received more than 650 citations. He has received a number of awards for his research including the award of Research Council of University of Antwerp for the best research activity in natural sciences.
