Since completing his PhD at ANU in 2001, Dr Macdonald has worked as a Research Scientist at the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), and at the ANU where he has held 3 Australian Research Council funded fellowships (Postdoctoral fellowship 2003-06, QEII fellowship 2007-11 and Future fellowship 2012-15).

Crystalline silicon solar cells, in particular the following aspects:

- The characterisation, detection and reduction of defects and impurities in silicon solar cells

- Recombination and trapping in silicon

- N-type silicon solar cells

- Low-cost solar-grade silicon

This research is described in my publications and has been supported by a number of research grants. You can take a look at my publication and citation record at Google Scholar.
