Share with us the story of your postgraduate journey.

In 2012, I joined the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) as a master student of our physics department. In my master studies, professors delivered courses for both the fundamental theories and emerging technologies. Such precious experiments inspired me to further research on science.

How did you choose this course and institution?

I highly recommend the Master in Green Technology (Energy) programme in the Department of Physics, HKBU, as it provides a multidisciplinary scopes focusing on the energy and environmental problems. Students graduate from the programme would be well-equipped for work in related areas, or pursuing for a higher degree.

What research are you currently pursuing?

Currently, my research interests focus on the organic semiconductors and their corresponding applications, such as solar cells, transistors, and sensors. As a rising field compared to the inorganic field, the organic devices provide more possibilities on the new life styles.

Choosing your supervisor

In my early postgraduate carrier, my supervisor supported me with patience and guidance for the starting of a scientific project. With the continuous study, my supervisor raised higher requirements in my research career. Under his supervision, I got my PhD degree in 2017, and all of these helps will play an important role in my research career.

Postgraduate studies and your career

It is difficult to define an appropriate time for pursuing a postgraduate degree. However, I believe you can start at anytime when you are ready.

What is your favourite part about your postgraduate degree?

My favourite part was the design of new scientific project. In this section, I enjoyed to explore the unknown world.

If you could change anything about your postgraduate journey, what would you do differently?

Certainly, with the supervision of my supervisor, I got my postgraduate degree smoothly and happily. If I could restart my postgraduate journey, I would choose the same supervisor and enjoy my research career in the same way.
