1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from and what is your research background? I come from Naples (Italy)- being as humble as I could but we created the first slice of pizza J- I had my early education there and later received my degree (both bachelor's and master’s) in chemical engineering from Università Degli Studi di Napoli Federico II. Even if the university is not the most equipped one, it allowed me to work with loads of brilliant and successful professors who taught me a lot both professionally and personally. Moreover, in my last year, I won a scholarship for the research stay at The Max Plank Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, Germany, for six months. There, I had the opportunity not only…
1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from and what is your research background? I was born and raised in Faisalabad, Pakistan, a city known as Manchester of Pakistan and famous for its heavy textile industries. Before joining for my Ph.D. at Sheffield, I worked as a graduate research engineer in Process Analysis Laboratory (PROCAL), affiliated with Advanced Biomass R&D Centre, and Master's in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, KAIST, Korea. During this process, I developed the skills for modeling, numerical simulations as well as experimental techniques. My experience of research has backed me to understand and implement my concepts into an application-oriented direction that can benefit public health. 2. Tell us briefly about the research project you have been doing as a Marie Curie Fellow? I have…
1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from and what is your research background? My name is Charu Sharma, and I am from the capital of India, Delhi. After completing my high school studies, I pursued Bachelor in Chemistry at Hindu College, University of Delhi. This was the golden period when I fell in love with the subject and realized that I wanted to continue with Chemistry. After cracking a competitive exam, I got an opportunity to carry out my Master's studies at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. During my Master's thesis under the supervision of Prof. Nidhi Jain, I worked on developing novel strategies to prepare drug molecules employing Photoredox Catalysis. While dealing with such a challenging project, I developed a profound interest in…
