Tony-James-Xian-June-2016 Professor Tony James visited the Shaanxi University of Science and Technology (SUST) in Xian earlier this month, where he was appointed as Guest Professor. 

Tony met with the Dean and Vice President of SUST, Professors Gong and Wang (pictured right), to discuss possible collaborations with the University of Bath. Dr Xiaolong Sun, a SUST graduate and PhD Student from Tony’s research group at Bath aided the discussions.
