Dr Doojin Vak is a Principal Research Scientist in CSIRO Manufacturing.

He received PhD from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea. After completing Ph.D. on organic semiconductors for optoelectronic applications such as OLEDs, he spent 2 years on the development of organic electronic devices such as organic photovoltaics, organic transistors and OLEDs in the Heeger Center for Advanced Materials (HCAM) at GIST. In 2007, he moved to Australia and joined The University of Melbourne as a post-doctoral researcher and started working on printing technologies for organic solar cells as a key researcher in the Victorian Organic Solar Consortium (VICOSC). After joining CSIRO as a research scientist in 2010, he has continued the research on printing-bassed fabrication of solar cells. He has been working on various industrial printing techniques and repeatidly demonstrated record-breaking efficiencies of printed solar cells. He is currently working on organic- and perovskite-based solar technologies via digital-tech-assisted research methods and moving toward Industry 4.0.
