Daria Andreeva is a physical chemist who now applies her knowledge in the context of development and investigation of dynamic stimuli responsive materials, materials that can change properties on demand.
In less than 10 years, the Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, initially known as Graphene Research Centre, published over 1000 research papers. Among CA2DM’s highly cited publications are studies on graphene, black phosphorous, transition metal dichalcogenides, van der Waals heterostructures and topological insulators.
CA2DM researchers, in collaboration with researchers from the Materials Project and using resources from Singapore’s National Supercomputing Centre, have created an open database of potential 2D materials generated from both computational exfoliation and chemical substitution, available online at http://2dmatpedia.org.
Professor Sir Konstantin ‘Kostya’ Novoselov joins NUS on 8 April 2019. Prof Novoselov has been an international scientific advisor to the NUS Centre for Advanced 2D Materials since 2015. He will be the first Nobel Laureate to join a Singapore university.
