We welcome Angel as a new PhD student and Joao Valente as Research Technologist.
We celebrate the successful spin out of Neuranics and say goodbye to three meLAB members, Asfand, Siming and Finlay, with a dinner event in Glasgow.
Professor Heidari and other colleagues from the University of Glasgow speak at Scottish Parliament as part of the Cross-Party Group on Science and Technology.
Dr Carlos Garcia Nunez joins the University of Glasgow as Lecturer in Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering. He also joined meLAB as co-director, leading the research theme on smart materials and energy systems.
EPSRC funded our research project "Superconducting Gatemon Quantum Computing Enabled by CryoElectronics" in collaboration with Quantum Circuits Group to boost our reserach on cryo-CMOS for quantum computing.
The President of UESTC visited our University and our labs.
Prof Maryam Shojaei Baghini vists meLAB. Out guest from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay visits the labs of meLB and gives a seminar on the technology behind an affordable and acurate frequency measurement system.
Neuranics team down under. Negin, Siming, Huxi and Hossein visited the University of Sydney.
Crossbrain in Spain. Hadi, Finlay, Laura, Mahdieh and Judy attended the EU Horizon CROSSBRAIN project meeting in San Sebastian.
Dr Haotian Chen from Biomedical Engineering Division at UofG delivered a seminar to our group.
NEWCAS: Judy, Mahdeih present their research on smart stents and magnetostrictive devices at the International Conference on New Circuits and Systems (NEWCAS) in Edinburgh. Kevin also presents his work on paramagnetic particle detection at his first ever conference. Well done everyone!
meLAB Away Day: We spent the day at Crieff Hydro reflecting on the previous year, taking part in team building activities and having inspiring discussions to ensure another successful year together.
