Welcome Sohini Sinha at ICMAB!

Hi! I am Sohini and I am from India. I have joined Inorganic Materials and Catalysis Laboratory (LMI's group) as a PhD. I will be working on boron cluster based fluorophores and it's application in two photon absorption spectroscopy. Travelling allows me to be independent, to connect with various people & visit new places. That's why it fascinates me the most, along with swimming & listening to music.
I am extremely glad to be here & I look forward to meet everyone.

Welcome Zhen Li at ICMAB!

Hello! My name is Zhen Li. I have obtained the master degree in Shanghai University of Engineering Science. Now I have joined the group of Functional Molecular and Nanostructured Inorganic Materials to pursue my Phd. In the next four years, I will contribute myself to the investigation of carborane-based Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Considering that this is my first time to go abroad, there may be many challenges in my following life. However, I believe that, with the help of Pepe (my Phd supervisor) and my friends, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Good luck for all of us!
