Crazy conference season in China!

Charl has just completed a short, but busy, trip: after visiting Shu-Hong’s labs, an additional visit to the Hefei University of Technology, the International Conference on Energy and Environmental Materials (all in Hefei), and then the International Seminar on Advanced Materials (in Shanghai)!

As the latter was held at Donghua University, Charl had the chance to catch up with former postdoc Yaozu (now professor at Donghua), who also attended the conference. Charl also managed to visit a small company in Anji, a smaller city close to Hangzhou – busy time indeed!

Visiting Shu-Hong at USTC, Hefei

It has been more than 10 years since Charl’s last visit to Hefei, where Shu-Hong Yu is based at the University of Science and Technology (USTC). It was great to visit his very productive laboratories, doing very impressive science, whilst also giving a talk and discussing new collaborative opportunities!


Great to catch up with old friends again – thanks for a great visit!
