About the Winner


Aron Walsh is Professor of Materials Design at Imperial College London and Dual Professor at Yonsei University, Korea. He was awarded his Ph.D in Chemistry from Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), completed a postdoctoral position at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (USA), and held a Marie Curie fellowship at University College London. Aron began his independent research career at the University of Bath and held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the Department of Chemistry. His research involves theory and simulation applied to problems across solid state chemistry and physics, including materials for solar cells and solar fuels. His group contributed to the operational principles of hybrid halide perovskite photovoltaics, as well as the understanding of electrically-conducting metal-organic frameworks. Aron has authored over 300 research publications, was the 2013 winner of the Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize, and the 2015 winner of the EU-40 Prize from the European Materials Research Society. In 2019 he became a Scientific Editor at Materials Horizons.
