Materials Physics Research Fellow selected to attend 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting

Dr Sean Ogilvie, Research Fellow in Materials Physics research group

Research Fellow Dr Sean Ogilvie has been offered a place at the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting in Germany from 28 June to 3 July 2020, a unique international forum for scientific exchange to be attended this year by around 600 young scientists and at least 70 Nobel Laureates.

Sean is a Research Fellow in the Materials Physics research group. His research focuses on processing 2D materials in liquids for printing of electronic devices and energy materials and aims to understand structure-property relationships in nanomaterials to enable real-world applications.

His recent work has involved the development of 2D material emulsions, where the nanomaterial stabilises droplets of water in oil to form functional networks which can be applied as inks, health monitoring strain sensors or materials for energy storage.

The opportunity to join the annual gathering of Nobel Laureates in Bavaria has been provided since 1951 to outstanding young scientists aged up to 35 – undergraduates, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers. 

Sean is humbled to be representing his research group at such a prestigious event.

He says: “It is a privilege to be selected to attend the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. This is a unique opportunity for me to interact with fellow young scientists from across the world and to learn from Nobel Laureates. With this year’s interdisciplinary theme, I hope to gather insights from across physics, chemistry, physiology and medicine that can inform my own research. I am really looking forward to the meeting."
