Professor Subodh Mhaisalkar is the Associate Vice President (Strategy & Partnerships) and Professor in the School of Materials Science & Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. Subodh is also the Executive Director of the Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N), a pan-University multidisciplinary research institute for innovative energy solutions. Prior to joining NTU in 2001, Subodh has over 10 years of research and engineering experience in the microelectronics industry where he held senior managerial positions at STATS Singapore, National Semiconductor, and SIMTech.

Prof Subodh’s main areas of research comprise perovskite solar cells, light emitting devices, and printable electronics. Common to all these projects are methods of solution processing of semiconductors, fundamental device physics studies, and device integration. For his work in Organic Thin Film Transistors, Subodh and his team won the IEEE 2008 George E. Smith Award for their work in printable electronics. Subodh is also the recipient of Ohio State University’s Professional Achievement Award 2012, the Nanyang Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in 2012, and Singapore National Day Award 2014 – The Public Administration Medal (Silver), and the IIT-Bombay Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2018.

Major research projects include Competitive Research Program Funding from the National Research Foundation on “Perovskite Optoelectronics;” Polymer & Molecular Electronics with A*STAR, and a DARPA funded program on printed charge storage devices. As the Executive-Director of the Energy Research Initiative @ NTU (ERI@N), Subodh leads a pan-university effort, coordinating all research activities within the University pertaining to energy and promoting interactions and collaborations between colleges in the area of energy research. In raising $220 M in research funding, ERI@N with a staff-strength of 230 full-time staff and 105 PhD students has set up 62 Industry partnership projects, including joint-laboratories (on NTU Campus) with global industry leaders BMW, Johnson Matthey, Vestas, Gamesa, Rolls-Royce, and Bosch.

Prof Subodh has graduated 35 Masters and PhD students and is currently supervising a group of 11 PhD students and research fellows.
Subodh has published more than 400 research papers and has active collaborations with UC Berkeley, CEA/CNRS France, IIT-Bombay, NUS, and local research institutes. Subodh received his Bachelors’ degree from IIT-Bombay and his MS/Ph.D. degrees from The Ohio State University.
