Dr. Wang focuses on the surface modification of materials using carbenes in OSCAR, in order to introduce a variety of properties onto a diversity of materials. In particular, her research aims at the development of polymerization of biscarbene systems, and the introduction of thermal responsive, wetting, adhesion or biocidal behaviors to polymer and protein surfaces.   






Research  Scientist


liu xiao song

Dr. Xiaosong Liu / Prof. Mark Moloney’s group

Dr. Xiaosong Liu joined OSCAR in December 2021 as a Research Scientist in Prof. Mark Moloney’s group. He achieved his two PhDs majoring in Textile Science and Engineering in 2015 at Donghua University (China) and in Mechanical Engineering in 2021 at Villanova University (USA) respectively. His PhD work in Textile Science and Engineering was focused on deep-colouring mechanism of non-cross-sectional fibre and its fabrics, exploring lipase enzyme surface modification and characterization on colour changes via polarization image processing techniques. Then, he switched to another area of PhD work, focusing mostly on the organic phase change materials nano-capsules for thermal energy storage applications. Xiaosong is familiar with polymer, graphene quantum dots and silver nanoparticle synthesis, purification, and functionalization.

During his work here, Xiaosong will mainly focus on the carbene surface chemistry applied on natural/bio-based polymer modification and its applications.





Dr. Yun Hu/Paul Stavrinou’s group

Yun Hu received his PhD in Soochow University in July 2020. His research focuses on organic semiconductor devices and their properties, including carrier injection, transportation, recombination, and energy levels. His research work now is about organic photodetectors and near-infrared organic light-emitting diodes.
