Collaboration week with the LISE, Paris, Sorbonne University

Maria and Ana are spending this week at the LISE in Paris, performing electrochemical studies on electrospun carbon mats for energy storage applications using quartz microbalance, in collaboration with Dr. Ozlem Sel. Below some pictures of us doing some work and also enjoying great food and company.

Welcome Carlos!


Welcome Carlos! Carlos has just joined our group to conduct his PhD project. He will be working on hybrid spin selective chiral systems for electrocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis applications. You can find more about him here.
