Dr Nripan Mathews
School of Materials Science and Engineering
B.Eng. / Class of 2003

For his accomplishments and outstanding contributions to the field of materials science, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Dr Nripan Mathews with the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

An Assistant Professor with NTU’s School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) since January 2014, Dr Mathews’ main research interests lie in the development of novel electronic materials like halide perovskites, amorphous metal oxides and organic semiconductors and how they can be adapted for practical applications. His research breakthroughs include insights into the electronic properties of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials and development of novel environmentally friendly alternatives. His findings will make solar panels cheaper and more efficient.

Dr Mathews has published more than 100 papers, which have been cited more than 5000 times with an h-index of 36. His work has been published in leading scientific journals like Science, Nature Materials and has also been featured in local media including Channel NewsAsia and Straits Times. 

He has been lauded for his contributions to the field of science. Last year, Dr Mathews was one of four recipients of the prestigious Young Scientist Awards, organised by the Singapore National Academy of Science and supported by A*STAR. In 2014, he received the TR35 @ Singapore Award 2014 from the MIT Technology Review. The award recognises the top young innovators under the age of 35. That year, together with Assoc Prof Sum Tze Chien, he also received the Research Excellence award at NTU’s annual Nanyang Awards.

A caring and passionate educator as well, he received the MSE’s Teacher of the Year Award in 2015 and has also previously assisted in fundraising for needy students and alumni of the School.

Prior to working at NTU, Dr Mathews served as the Singapore R&D Director of SinBeRISE (Singapore-Berkeley Research Initiative for Sustainable Energy), and as a Visiting Scientist at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland in the lab of Prof Michael Gratzel, the inventor of the dye-sensitized solar cell and one of the three most highly cited chemists in the world.



礼潘.马修博士
材料科学与工程学院
工程学士 / 2003年毕业班

礼潘.马修博士凭借在材料科学领域的斐然成就与卓越贡献,获南洋理工大学授予南洋杰出青年校友奖。

马修博士2014年1月成为南大材料科学与工程学院助理教授,他的研究范围侧重于开发新型电子材料例如卤化物钙钛矿、非晶态金属氧化物、有机半导体,以及钻研如何将这些物质融入实际应用中。他取得的突破性成果包括对有机-无机混合物钙钛矿的电子成分的研究以及发展新的环保替代材料,他的研发将有助于打造出高效且成本较低廉的太阳能电池板。

马修博士发表过上百篇论文,论文被引用超过5000次,h指数为36。他的著作曾登上权威科学期刊如《科学》、《自然材料》,也曾被本地媒体如亚洲新闻电视台及海峡时报报道过。

马修博士对科学界贡献良多,屡获褒奖。他是去年四名青年科学家奖得主之一,这个极富盛名的奖项由新加坡国立科学学会主办,并获得新加坡科技研究局鼎力支持。马修博士2014年入选《麻省理工学院科技评论》杂志年度35位35岁以下青年创新者榜单;同年他与岑子健副教授在南大常年南洋颁奖礼上获颁研究卓越奖。

马修博士也是一位关怀学生、充满教学热忱的教育工作者,2015年获南大材料科学与工程学院颁发年度教师奖。每当学院为贫困学生和校友筹款时,马修博士也义不容辞伸出援手。

加入南大之前,马修博士是新加坡-伯克利可持续能源研究所新加坡科研总监,他也曾到瑞士洛桑联邦理工大学格兰泽尔教授实验室担任访问科学家。格兰泽尔教授纳是晶染料敏化太阳能电池的发明者,亦是全世界论文被引用次数最高的三位化学家之一。
