“SCI allow you to explore different topics outside your research field and keep you up to date on some cutting-edge research, which is important for multidisciplinary projects.”
What are your research interests?
- Aerosol Filtration
- Self-healing material
Why SCI? How did you first get involved and why would you encourage your peers to join?
I attended several events held by SCI, such as the SCI electrochemistry postgraduate conference, out of interest. I think they have advertised on a journal website. I recommend my peers to join because it allows you to explore different topics outside your research field and keep you up to date on some cutting-edge research, which is important for multidisciplinary projects.
SCI aims to be ‘where science meets business’. What is the potential commercial application of your research?
Microfluidics: A drug delivery microchip to promote angiogenesis of skin scaffold
Aerosol Filtration: Hydrophilic and hydrophobic filters arranged in a certain array to improve filter efficiency for kitchen range hood
Self-healing material: Mix layer double hydroxide with cement to protect bridge pier from corrosion and reducing repair cost.
What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
As an ambassador, I hope more people will know about these free online events, which might benefit their work and therefore boost the chemical industry in another way.
As a chemical engineering student, I would like to further my knowledge of the chemical sciences and expand my network in the industry.
As an international student, I hope to improve my English presentation skill and meet experts like you from all over the world.
