Ts. Dr. Mohd Zamir bin Pakhuruddin is currently the Director at Institute of Nano Optoelectronics Research and Technology (INOR), Universiti Sains Malaysia. He graduated with BEng of Electrical Engineering from University of Sheffield, United Kingdom. Upon graduation, he spent about 8 years in industry as a Senior Engineer of Photolithography and Sputtering (R&D) in SilTerra and Fuji Electric, Kulim Hi-Tech Park respectively. In 2012, he graduated with MSc of Physics at Universiti Sains Malaysia, where he did his research on silicon thin-film solar cells on flexible substrates. In 2016, he completed his PhD in Photovoltaics Engineering at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, where he worked on the development of light-trapping schemes in e-beam evaporated laser-crystallised silicon thin-film solar cells on glass superstrates.

His expertise is in photovoltaic materials and devices (PVMD). His current research includes black silicon, perovskite and organic solar cells for conventional, solar windows and indoor photovoltaic applications. Besides, he also works on anti-reflective coatings for optoelectronic devices. He also has ongoing works on simulation of solar cells using ray tracing and other device simulation platforms. To date, he has published more than 40 research papers in the field of photovoltaic and he is also active in reviewing manuscripts for high-impact journals such as IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics, Solar Energy, Applied Surface Science, Nanoscale, ACS Applied Energy Materials, Results in Physics, Current Applied Physics, Energies, Materials, IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, Nano-Structures & Nano-Objects, Heliyon and others. He has been a keynote speaker and an invited speaker in international conferences, seminars and trainings on topics related to the physics of solar cells, optics and light-trapping, photovoltaic technologies and photovoltaic manufacturing. He is a Professional Technologist (Ts.) in the area of Green Technology. Besides, he is also a member of Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and Malaysian Institute of Physics.
