Postdoctoral Research Associate Chemistry


Personal Statement

Jiaqi completed both his bachelor’s and master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Central South University (China). His joint PhD program between Saarland University (Germany) and University of Lorraine (France) mainly focused on the investigation of copper surfaces in antibacterial efficiency tests from the corrosion aspect. He therefore gained experience in various surface and microstructural characterisations, thin film deposition approaches, and surface structuring techniques.

Within the Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces supervised by Prof. Rasmita Raval, his current research interests include development of antibacterial surfaces, design of antibacterial efficiency tests, and investigation of bacteria-surface interaction using electron microscopy and spectroscopy.
