Australia China Young Scientists Exchange Program 2018

In the end of October 2018 i was invited to participate in the Australia China Young Scientists Exchange Program 2018 and travel to Beijing. This exchange program is co-organized by the Australian and Chinese governments to promote scientific exchange between these countries.

During the program, I was privileged to meet Prof. Ke Yang from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shenyang), Prof. Hao Hai from the Dalian University of Technology, and Prof. Prof. Peizhong Feng who works at the China University of Mining and Technology. I was impressed by the high level of research and the progressive working environments of the research teams lead by these renowned scientists. Several joint Projects have been initiated with the aim to build ongoing collaboration.

In the following months, I will work with Innovyz, Newcastle Innovation and UoN Research Services to transform our lab research into a commercial product!
