Most recently, Prantik Mazumder, Principle Research Scientist, from Corning Incorporated and partner of the NANO-GLASS project, visited ICFO for a few days and met the researchers of the NANO-GLASS project.
Prantik has been working closely with NANO-GLASS project coordinator, professor at ICFO Valerio Pruneri since 2010. During the week-long visit, both had the opportunity to focus on the status of the progress of the projects and establish the next steps to be considered in the forthcoming months.
Moreover, Prantik was able to hold face to face meetings with Early Stage Researcher (ESR2), Alessia Mezzadrelli, whose Individual Research Project (IRP) is co-supervised by Valerio Pruneri and Mazumder. These meetings were to discuss and track the progress of Alessia’s research work.
“It has been a very fruitful visit as I had the opportunity to have detailed discussions with Alessia about the simulation and experimental work she has done and develop well-defined goals for her upcoming secondment with Corning, New York,” said Prantik Mazumder.
According to Valerio Pruneri, “visits like this are important for the project progress because they help define effective work-plan toward relevant objectives as well as create team spirit between the company and the institute, essential for the success of the project”.
Prantik Mazumder co-supervises two of the four IRPs in the framework of NANO-GLASS project. The first one is the project of Iliyan Karadzhov (ESR1) on multifunctional surfaces for display screens. The second one is the before mentioned project of Alessia Mezzadrelli on optical tunable surfaces for display screens.
