Continuing to Kyoto…

Charl continued his short trip to Kyoto University, where he visited the world-leading research laboratories of Prof Hiroshi Kitagawa. This visit was an opportunity to renew the long-standing interactions (interrupted by COVID!), and to explore new opportunities for joint symposia, student and staff exchanges, and collaborative research activities. Here Charl is with Prof Kitagawa, and his group (in front of the Clifton Suspension Bridge!).

A visit to National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Japan

Charl is currently visiting colleagues and potential collaborators in Japan. His short visit started with a wonderful visit at the National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba in Japan. He was hosted by Dr Takashi Nakanishi (Group Leader, Frontier Molecules Group), and had the pleasure of having three generations of Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces together: Ken Sakaushi (2013–2015), Charl (2001–2004) and Takashi (2007–2010).
