Khalil As'Ham

Casual Academic

I am Ph.D. student who is passionate and dedicated to continuing research in nanotechnology for developing optoelectronic devices. Due to my excellent track record of communication, organization, and problem-solving skills, I have graduated with distinction in both bachelor’s degree and master’s degree as one of the best students in my class with a first-class in bachelor’s degree and who has a very high GPA in master’s degree. I was privileged to be awarded two full scholarships for my master’s degree and my Ph.D. Moreover, I have good working experience as a teaching assistant and as a researcher.

I have collaborated with both international and national scholars. For three years, I have been working with Australian National Fabrication Facilities (ANFF) at the Australian National University (ANU) where I have gained a lot of experience working with fabrication nanodevices such as Electron Beam Lithography (EBL), Electron Beam Themal Evaporator (EB-Evap), Sputtring, Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition (PECVD), and Inductively Coupled Plasma Etching (ICP). My supervisor along with other scholars, are pursuing funding from the United States Air Force (USAF). Furthermore, I have published joint papers with notable researchers known worldwide such as Prof. Andrey Miroshnichenko, Dr. Haroldo Hattori, and Dr. Lujun Huang from UNSW, Dr Ziyuan Li from ANU , Dr Lei Xu from Nottingham Trent University, and Benjamin Olbricht from the USA.
