We have the pleasure of hosting two laboratory interns, Sharifah and Aleksi, from Turku Vocational Institute. You can see them around in our laboratory for the next six weeks. Hopefully they find the stay and research with us interesting and useful!
Adj. Prof. Mika Lastusaari succesfully defended his 2nd thesis in the Department of the Education on Saturday 10th of November 2018.
We gained new addition as Anssi Peuronen joined us for his three-year post doctoral project (tutkijatohtori) from the Academy of Finland.
His current research is focused on developing metal-organic coordination cages that would be able to selectively bind anions. Anssi will be working closely with our other metal-organic chemists Ari Lehtonen, Pasi Salonen and Esko Salojärvi.
We hope that you have settled well and enjoy your stay with us.
Esko got funding for his PhD topic in “Near infra-red absorbing metal complexes and their use in solar energy” from Walter Ahlström foundation, Minnea got additional funding from Finnish Cultural Foundation into “Luminescent materials and perovskites in solar energy” and Emilia got funded by Vilho, Yrjö and Kalle Väisälä foundation. Congrats to all and keep doing the good job!
