Eugene joined the lab in October 2017 as a doctoral student on the topic of pick and place nanoassembly. This project aims to investigate ways to build structures one nanoparticle at a time which will have a huge impact to design flexibility at the nanoscale. Prior to joining the lab, Eugene studied the effect of electric fields and trace water on confined liquid hydrocarbons in an AFM at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering. He also carried out computational studies on the tuning of photonic nanojets as part of his undergraduate programme at the University of Singapore. Outside of labwork, he enjoys running and swimming.
