Dr. Mohammad Wali Ullah
Dr. Mohammad W. Ullah joined the Materials Science and Technology Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) as a postdoctoral research associate in April 2015; he received his Ph.D. from the University of Helsinki, Finland. His thesis was focused on understanding the effect of single and molecular ion irradiation on defect formation and optical properties of bulk and nanostructured GaN. He holds a M. Sc. degree from the Materials Science and Engineering Department in Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. Mohammad is a member of the BES-funded Energy Frontier Research Center on Energy Dissipation to Defect Evolution (EDDE) at ORNL, works under the supervision of Professor William J. Weber. As a researcher in Thrust 2, he is using atomistic simulations (molecular dynamics) to study ion irradiation induced primary damage formation, accumulation and evolution due to cascade overlap. He is the author or co-author of 8 published and 4 accepted/submitted peer-reviewed publications.
