Rakesh Pradhan is from India. He got the Master of Science course in Physics at the Indian Institute of Technology Jodhpur (IITJ), India. During this period, he attended an invited talk by prof. Udo Schwingenschloegl (KAUST), which influenced him to think about the fundamental research in material science using density functional theory.
First, Rakesh visited KAUST as a VSRP. He liked the research environment and decided to continue his journey as a PhD student. Currently, Rakesh is working in Kaust Solar Center with prof. Stefaan De Wolf on single-junction perovskite solar cell sing blade coating and slot-die methods.
