Ahmad Kirmani is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Materials Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), US, where he leads the INterface and Structure in Printed Inorganic ElectRONics (INSPIRON) research laboratory. He earned his PhD in 2017 from the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST), and later carried out postdoctoral research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). In his research career, Kirmani has explored and advanced next-generation electronics based on semiconductor inks including colloidal nanocrystals, metal-halide perovskites, and metal oxides. His research has drawn attention to the importance of interfaces and microstructure in realizing the lab-to-fab transition of printed electronics. His most recent research effort focuses on understanding radiation-matter interactions in perovskite semiconductors and exploring their aerospace compliance.
