Dr Yuewen Sheng joined the electron Bio-Imaging Centre (eBIC) in December 2019 as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to expand his knowledge in cryogenic electron microscopy (CryoEM) and explore ways to utilise CVD-grown graphene in biological applications. In particular, Yuewen has been working on developing a novel sample preparation method with home-made graphene grids and the latest picolitre volume dispensing technology, designed in a timed and automated manner. Yuewen also has regular local contact duties to support external users throughout sample preparation, data acquisition and structure analysis using the latest generation of Cryo-electron microscopes.

Before moving to the eBIC team, Yuewen completed his DPhil degree from the Department of Materials, University of Oxford in 2017, and then worked as a postdoc in the same research group for another 2 years. His research was focused on the synthesis and characterisation of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials, as well as the fabrication of 2D heterostructures for optoelectronics such as LEDs and solar cells.

Research Interests

1. Synthesis and characterisation of graphene and other 2D materials

2. van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures for ultrathin electronics and optoelectronics

3. CVD-grown graphene for biological applications: CryoEM sample prep, SPA and Cryo-ET
