Speaker: Prof. Adelina ILIE,University of Bath
Time：Monday, 16:00-17:00 ,13th January
Place：Shangshanyuan Conference Room 1-210
Sponsor：Prof. DING Sunan
Adelina Ilie is a Reader at the University of Bath (Department of Physics), UK, working in the general field of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology. She is a Group Leader, and a founding member and co-Principal Investigator of the Bath Centre for Graphene Science, established through a multi-million pound “Science and Innovation Award” from the UK government.
Prior to coming to Bath, she was an academic staff member in the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge, UK, where she has also held several Research Fellowships (including one in conjunction with the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS)/JST, Japan). She has obtained her PhD from Ecole Polytechnique, France.
Prof. Ilie’s research encompasses interdisciplinary research spanning from the fundamental, through translation, to real-world applications. Her group studies and engineers the physical/ quantum properties of topical nano-materials - currently graphene and related novel 2D materials, as well as 2D molecular networks - at and from the nanoscale to induce new functionality at the macro-scale. Target applications are novel IT technologies. She is also developing hybrid bio-inorganic interfaces and systems for biosensing and biomedicine, a recent highlight being the development of a non-invasive glucose monitoring technology.
Her talk today will exemplify this approach and some of her research themes.
