Chongqing - Professor Konstantin Novoselov is a Russian–British physicist specializing in advanced 2D Materials at the National University of Singapore, and his work on graphene earned the Nobel Prize in Physics back in the year 2010.
At the first Belt and Road Conference on Science and Technology Exchange, Prof. Novoselov discussed the role the event plays in resolving global issues and how it can promote deeper connections that will develop talent to a greater level.
Graphene is an exciting new material that Prof. Novoselov has been developing for many years. It has already been applied in many fields, including batteries and sensors. The next step is to produce more functional and dynamic materials that can exhibit live behaviors in response to environmental changes.
"From the practical side, we will work on functional composite materials such as structural engineering, anti-corrosion, and fire retardants," Prof. Novoselov shared with Bridging News reporters on November 6 in Chongqing.
He also describes the great advantages Chongqing possesses as a large metropolis with a vast pool of talent and how the city's business and educational institutions are clustered, offering convenient access and leverage to their resources and equipment.
