Hany Aziz is an Associate professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Waterloo and the Associate director of the Giga-to-Nanoelectronics Centre.
His research interests lie in the area of organic electronics, focusing on electroluminescent and light harvesting (organic photovoltaics, optical detection and imaging devices) materials and devices. The research projects range from studying fundamental phenomena in material and device physics to developing technologies for new and emerging applications, such as: mechanically flexible and transparent flat panel displays, solution process-able solar cells and printable electronics.
Professor Aziz received his PhD in materials science and Engineering from McMaster University in 1999. Prior to joining the University of Waterloo in May 2007, he had been a research scientist at Xerox research centre of Canada for 8 years, where he was involved in conducting and leading research in organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) and photoreceptor imaging devices.
Professor Aziz has published more than 60 papers and holds 46 U.S. patents. He also holds the appointment of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada/Teledyne DALSA (NSERC-DALSA) industrial research chair in organic light-emitting devices for flexbile displays.
