Dr. Thushara Subasinghe, senior lecturer in Department of Chemical and Process Engineering visited Dr. Bo Bao's microfluidics laboratory in East China University of science and technology, Shanghai in June 2019 to initiate the research collaborations. Dr. Thushara and Dr. Bo are working together to enhance the separability of heterogeneous carbon microspheres. They expected to improve the electrical properties of carbon electrodes by isolating heterogeneous carbon microspheres. The separation technology is expected to develop based on microfluidics techniques which comes under the microtechnology. The team also expect to recruit one Sri Lankan postgraduate students to join the team.
