David Jones

Senior Researcher,
School of Chemistry,
University of Melbourne

Dr Jones is currently a Research Group Leader developing high performance organic electronic materials for large area printed solar cells and their translation to large area printed solar cells. He has developed new classes of high performance materials with a high temperature nematic liquid crystalline phase with exceptional materials properties. His research collaborations include USA (NIST, Georgia Tech, Princeton, NREL), KAUST, Germany (KIT, MPIP, Ulm, Merck, Bayreuth), and UK (Imperial) along with extensive collaborations within Australia.

Dr Jones has, over the last 10 years, been project coordinator/manager on development and translation of organic solar cells to large area printed solar cells. He has been a CI, PI, and project coordinator on grants worth over $17 million, and is currently node co-coordinator in the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP), a $33 million dollar program bringing together Australian researchers to overcome barriers to commercialisation of emerging technologies.
