Working here was a unique opportunity for a young Batchelor’ degree student and, I enjoyed working at strong interdisciplinary and multicultural environment. This was the reason for deciding to continue my scientific career at ICMAB.
My research consisted in manufacturing low-cost and flexible electronics devices.
Organic electronics is a promising technology that try to reduce the cost, weight and robustness of conventional electronics. The great banner of organic electronics are OLED panels.
Nothing ever goes the way you plan in your way.
I have learned that one of the most valuable skills to possess is creativity. We all face problems. That's why being creative when solving problems is important.
I will work a few months here while I am looking for a Post-Doctoral position.
Be careful with COVID-19. Since my work is manly experimental, I needed to be in the lab to carry out my experiments. The lockdown was a hard hit.
Richard Feynman was a keen populariser of physics and the father of nanotechnology.
I think this is the start of something really big. And sometimes the beginnings are the hardest one, and this just gets started.
