Interview with Raymond Wai-Yeung Wong

The downside of my job 10 years ago was … the deficiency of postgraduate research students in the group.
And today … it is the lack of sufficient time to supervise the research students because of many other commitments.

The best thing about my job 10 years ago was …
being able to devote myself to my research and teaching only.
And today … it is the challenge to manage the whole department.

My greatest motivation 10 years ago was …
to climb up the academic ladder with great research productivity.
And today … it is to nurture more young scientists in the group.

In a spare hour 10 years ago …
I did something I wanted to do.
And today … I will take a short rest to refresh myself.

My favorite piece of research from the past 10 years is …
the successful development of some highly efficient multifunctional metallophosphors for OLED applications.

My most exciting discovery in the past 10 years has been …
the use of low-bandgap metallopolyynes for organic solar cell applications.
