One of my best friends worked in ICMAB. He gave me a positive feedback about ICMAB research atmosphere.
My research focus on looking for promising thermoelectric materials in order to enhance the conversion efficiency from heat to electricity, which is helpful to overcome the global energy crisis.
Wearable devices. Like a smart watch, which can use the temperature difference between the human body and the atmosphere to generate electricity.
The kind and hospitable people
I got my PhD degree here. The research skills I learned here are helpful for my future research career.
I would like to be a postdoctoral researcher, and then become a University teacher.
For new Chinese students, I suggest to make friends with people from different countries.
I want to be a woman scientist like M. Isabel Alonso, my supervisor.
M. Isabel Alonso. Firstly, she is a responsible supervisor. Secondly, she is hard working. Thirdly, she is knowledgeable. She knows a lot about ellipsometry and Raman spectroscopy.
