Peijang, new PhD researcher

His name is Peijiang Wang, he is from Hami (China) and he is joining the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) as a new predoctoral researcher at 2d Foundry Group. He is now working alongside Beatriz H. Juárez, who is his thesis director. Meet this new scientist here:

What have you worked on so far?

During my master's degree, I mainly studied polymer-related courses, and based on this, I studied fluorescent metal-organic framework materials. I synthesized a fluorescent cobalt-based metal-organic framework material and applied it to nitroaromatic compounds. detection. I am working on near-infrared luminescence and bioimaging based on silver sulfide nanoparticles.

What will you work on? With whom?

I will study the near-infrared luminescence properties of silver sulfide nanoparticles. Silver sulfide nanoparticles are a type of material with good near-infrared luminescence properties. By surface modification, doping and other means, their luminous intensity can be further improved and applied in vivo to obtain higher resolution. in-vivo images. This will become a new means of diagnosing diseases and can cooperate with other experts in materials science and biology.

Why did you chose ICMM?

I want to learn more about the field of materials synthesis and expand my research horizons. ICMM has a good scientific research level and excellent scientific researchers, and the team has rich research experience in materials science, especially two-dimensional nanomaterials. At the same time, it can also cooperate with groups in the field of biology to obtain better scientific research results.

And a personal touch: any hobbies? What would you like to contribute to the institute?

During my break, I usually choose to go hiking and take photos, or cook delicious food at home. I also play some video games occasionally. I hope that I can cooperate with experts in different fields, learn more knowledge, and achieve good scientific research results.
