N&N group has a new postdoc! It is Vinod V K Thalakkatukalathil from India.
Amanda Muñoz had the opportunity to attend a CSIC course titled Curso de Buenas Prácticas Científicas (Good practice in Science). It took place in La Casa de la Ciencia in Valencia. PhD students from different fields gathered there to learn and discuss:
N&N Group keeps growing. Meet Paweł Cwynar, who is going to spend six months in ICMAB working on stabilization of low-density polymorphs by negative pressure under supervision of Martí Gich.
The NN group members would like to congratulate Qianzhe Zhang for his excellent work on the Ph.D. thesis defense!
Qianzhe’s thesis is entitled “Microstructural Control of Epitaxial α-Quartz Films” and has been supervised by Dr. Martí Gich from the NN group and Dr. Adrián Carretero-Genevrier from NanoChemLab (Institut d´electronique et des Systèmes – IES, France)
The jury was formed by Dr. Francisco Rivadulla Fernández (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain), Dr. Mariona Coll Bau (ICMAB-CSIC) and Dr. Romain Bachelet (Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology, France).
Congratulations to our students for high marks in their research projects!
It has been very nice to have you in the group and we wish you a lot of success in your future careers!
