Personal Statement

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

He now works as a postdoc in Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces, supervised by Prof. Rasmita Raval. His current research interests include development and characterisation of antimicrobial surfaces, and investigation of biofilm and bacteria-surface interaction using light/fluorescence micrscopy, electron microscopy, and various spectroscopy.
