Charl gave a seminar at the Chinese Academy of Science’s National Centre for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing very recently! Charl spent two months at the NCNST in 2012 as visiting professor, so great to visit again!
Even better was the fact that Charl was hosted by his former postdoc, and now very successful academic, Professor Zhixiang Wei. Charl found the following photo when Zhixiang, and fellow postdoc (and equally successful academic!) Tierui Zhang, were enjoying time out at a Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces weekend away 14 years ago!
