      Charles Surya received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rochester in 1987. From 1987 to 1994 he was associated with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Northeastern University.  He joined the Electronic and Information Engineering (EIE) Department in 1994 and remained there since.  Professor Surya’s research interests are: optoelectronic materials and devices including MOCVD growth of GaN thin films and the study of GaN-based LEDs and UV detectors; growth of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials and the fabrication of advanced perovskite based photovoltaic cells; and low-frequency noise in electron devices. Presently, Professor Surya is spearheading a collaborative effort between The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the City of Dongguan, China for the establishment of an R&D Center on the study of photovoltaic materials, devices and systems.  He became a full professor of the Department in 2002andsince 2013hewas appointed Clarea Au Endowed Professor in Energy.  Professor Surya had served in various administrative posts including Associate Head of the EIE Department (2002-2005), Associate Dean of the Faculty of Engineering (2007 – 2010) and the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Engineering (2010 – 2012) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  While serving as the Associate Dean and Acting Dean of the Faculty he was responsible for the implementation of outcome-based approach in the Engineering Faculty.  From 2007 – 2013 Professor Surya was the The Hong Kong Polytechnic University representative to the Hong Kong University Grants Council Panel for Outcome-based Education to oversee the implementation of Outcome-based Approach among the Engineering Faculties in Hong Kong.  He had been active in EDS and had served in various capacities including conference co-chair and chapter chair in the past.  He is presently serving as the Chairman of the Optoelectronic Devices Technical Committee.
