Mr. Mengxin Ren

Project
Nanophotonics and Metamaterials

Short CV
Mr. Mengxin Ren is currently a Visitor at the Optoelectronics Research Centre at University of Southampton. He was awarded a BSc by Tianjin University (China) in 2007, and went on with his PhD studies at Nankai University in the same year. His current research interests lie in the fields of metamaterials and nanophotonics.
