Visit to Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Dec 2012
From 3rd to 7th December 2012 I visited Liverpool’s partner/satellite university campus in Suzhou, China to discuss teaching and research collaborations with the Department of Civil Engineering there. I was made most welcome by Prof. Steve Millard (HoD) and his team. Some very exciting research potential arose from the visit, particularly in the area of biomineralisation for use in management of landfill leachate, which is being taken forward in collaboration with Dr Stephen Wilkinson.
I toured the vast new engineering laboratory facilities, visited with colleagues from the fledging Department of Environmental Sciences, and enjoyed some great nights out in Suzhou. Below is a selection of images from the trip. I hope to return!
