Organic light emitting devices, organic and hybrid optoelectronics, novel techniques for neural stimulation.
During his time as a Fulbright Scholar, Dr Ahmad aims to develop flexible and stretchable organic lightemitting devices for optical stimulation of the peripheral nervous system. This work will potentially allow the development of non-invasive techniques for neural stimulation as compared to existing invasive techniques. To achieve the intended research targets, Dr Ahmad will closely collaborate with biomedical and medical experts at the University of Texas at Austin.
Dr Ahmad is currently employed as a Research Fellow at Australian National University, Canberra. Viqar completed his PhD in Physics and has a Bachelor and Masters degree in Electrical Engineering. The focus of his recent research has been organic and hybrid optoelectronic devices. He will spend 10 months at the University of Texas at Austin as a Postdoctoral Fulbright Scholar.
