Next EC2/BIG-NSE symposium on Wednesday, September 15, from 5 to 6 pm

Aidin Nejadsalim (WS18 batch, Gurlo group) and Mudassar Javed (WS19 batch, Repke group), present the progress of their PhD work

5:00-5:20 pm: Aidin Nejadsalim

“Designing of Pt-CeO2@SiO2 core-sheath nanofibers using electrospinning and wet impregnation for CO2 hydrogenation” (abstract here)

Aidin is an EC2/BIG-NSE PhD student from the WS18 batch. He is currently writing his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Aleksander Gurlo, Prof. Dr. Arne Thomas and Prof. Dr. Reinhard Schomäcker and is funded by an EC2/BIG-NSE scholarship. He comes from the capital city of Iran, Tehran. He studied Ceramic Engineering at the Science and Research University, Tehran, Iran to accomplish his bachelor studies and then completed his master program in Nanomaterials Engineering at Sharif University of Technology (SUT), Tehran, Iran. He joined to Prof. Dr. Gurlo’s group to complete his PhD in 2018 and finally he started as a EC2/BIG-NSE student in January 2019.


5:30-5:50 pm: Mudassar Javed

"Optimizing the distance between two active sites of heterogenous bifunctional catalysts" (abstract here)

Mudassar is an EC2/BIG-NSE PhD student from the WS19 batch. He originates from a small town of Punjab, Pakistan. He joined the doctoral program in Oct. 2019 and started working in the group of Prof. Dr. Repke (TUB) in Jan 2020. He did his bachelor in Chemical Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology Lahore Pakistan and then in 2016 he moved to Hangzhou China and started his Master's degree in Chemical Engineering in Zhejiang University of Science and Technology which he finished in Jan 2019. During his master studies he was working in the field of heterogenous catalysis which he then continued in the group of Prof. Repke, under the co-supervision by Prof. Dr. Reinhard Schomäcker (TUB).


The EC2/BIG-NSE symposium represents a new series of scientific presentations given by our EC2/BIG-NSE PhD students (see schedule of the coming months here). On Wednesday afternoons, two students give an online talk from approximately 5-6 pm (20 min presentation each + 10 mn Q/A). The symposium takes place online using Zoom. The access to the event is restricted to members of UniSysCat. The Zoom Link is sent to them a few days before symposium date.

Looking forward to welcoming you at the next symposium!
