How to update your personal details

Profile photo
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

He graduated from Imperial College London in 2011, with a first-class honours degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and then awarded a PhD in 2016, for his work on light trapping nano-structures for silicon photovoltaics. He then joined ECS as a post-doctoral researcher, working on tandem-cells and quantum materials. He was promoted to Senior Research Fellow in 2018, where he worked on black silicon surfaces for industrial photovoltaics. Tasmiat was appointed as a lecturer for ECS in 2021. He now leads a team of researchers focusing on developing combined solar and energy storage technologies, building their sustainability through integration of IoT networks, and understanding the socio-economic barriers to implementation within developing communities. 

Tasmiat has published 17 journal papers and delivered over 20 oral/poster presentations at national and international conferences. His research output is also highlighted by winning the IET Innovation Award in 2019. He is an organising committee member for the international PV-SAT conference and also co-ordinates the annual PV training day for the EPSRC SuperSolar Hub. Tasmiat currently teaches on a broad range of modules within electrical and electronic engineering, as well as supervising PhD and MSc students, and has been recognised as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
