Shuxia Tao is Assistant Professor of Computational Materials Physics at the Center for Computational Energy Research, Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the Netherlands. With a Physical Chemistry background from Nankai University in China, Shuxia Tao started her PhD in 2007 at Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, TU/e, the Netherlands. There she learnt Computational Materials Science and earned her PhD in 2011 with a thesis on hydrogen storage in metal hydrides for battery applications. After a short career break to care for her children, from 2013 to 2016, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at NWO physics institute NIKHEF for computational materials design for photodetectors. Since 2016, with two prestigious personal grants, Tao is leading her research group Computational Materials Physics, focusing on the emerging and highly interdisciplinary field of perovskite solar cells. Since then, she has made original and significant contribution in the fundamental understanding the electronic structure of the metal halide perovskites as well as improving the stability of the perovskite solar cells, featured in prestigious journals as such Nature Energy, Nature Communications, and Advanced Materials and Advanced Functional Materials.
