A School of Chemistry event was held to showcase the research from all early career researchers (M.Res., PhD and postdocs), with talks, a wine reception and posters!
Great news is that Veronica from our group won the poster prize! Congratulations Veronica! Here some photos of some other group members at their posters! Well done to all on a great effort, and thanks to Tom Oliver, Carmen Galan and Simon Hall for organising this event!
Charl is spending some time at Tsinghua University, Beijing, hosted by collaborator Prof Xi Zhang and his group. This opportunity provides some space and time to think, write proposals and papers, chatting to the rest of the group in Bristol using wechat (or Skype), and interacting with Xi’s students!
Charl and Xiaoyu (former BCFN MSc student who worked in the FRG) met up in Beijing at the recent Alumni meeting. This was the second time they met up (Xiaoyu also came to visit Charl at Tsinghua).
Xiaoyu is doing well, working for a battery R&D company, whilst also exploring further opportunities. In addition to these more formal meeting, Charl, Xiaoyu, Jennifer and other friends from BISC met up for dinner! Great to catch up!
Yuanlei and Charl met up at the UoB’s China graduation ceremony, held, for the first time, in Shanghai! It was great to catch up with Yuanlei, who helped at the ceremony as volunteer. Yuanlei was also responsible for a for a great video of the event, which will be made public very soon!
It was a fantastic afternoon and a great privilege to share in the day with many UoB graduates and their families!
Well done and congratulations to those we graduated!
As the academic year rushes along, it was that time of the year again – the final year undergraduate research project students gave their presentations recently (after some delays due to the bad weather).
As is the tradition, we said “well done” and “goodbye” by going to Cosmo for a great all-you-can-eat lunch!
Dr Alex and Master Nan graduated very recently! They came to the lab, and Nan even spent a bit of time in the lab with his suite on! Well done to both!
We have had the privilege to have had both Wei and Ben (former PhD students) visiting during the last week! Was great to have both of them here, at the same time!
A new postdoc, Pan, also joined the group in the last week! Pan, who did his PhD at the National Centre for Nanoscience and Technology in Beijing (with Prof Bao-Hang Han), was awarded a Newton International Fellowship for 2 years! Welcome Pan!
