Peiching Xu

"SCI also has a close connection with industry; with its help, you are able to have a better understanding of how existing technology can be put into practice."

What are your research interests?
My interests lie in soft matter physics, specifically the self-assembly of colloids.

How did you first get involved with SCI?
SCI was first introduced to me by my supervisor, when I gave a poster presentation about my research at a symposium organized by SCI.

What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
I hope I can meet and know more people working in the field of soft matter physics. In this way, I can always keep up with the most advanced science. I also hope I can gain lots of useful advice about my career.

Why would you encourage your peers to join SCI?
After attending a few events organized by SCI, I find it a very good forum. There are a lot of benefits you can gain from it. First of all, being a member of SCI, you can always find people who share the same research interest with you. In addition, by attending different kinds of conferences or lectures, you can gain an access to the most advanced science. Moreover, SCI also has a close connection with industry; with its help, you are able to have a better understanding of how existing technology can be put into practice. Furthermore, you are always encouraged to take part in outreach activities with the travel bursaries on offer.
