If his researchers need him urgently… 
Equity and Excellence in Research Funding
The tension between equity and excellence is fundamental in science policy. This tension might appear to be resolved through the use of merit-based evaluation as a criterion for research funding.
Oxygen sensors made by monolayer graphene under room temperature
The electrical resistivity of monolayer graphene exhibit significant changes upon expose to different concentration of oxygen (O2) at room temperature. The monolayer graphene, grown by chemical vapor
