During the speech, Mr Ebler shared his research and study experience as a Science postgraduate. After the completion of his undergraduate and master degrees in Physics at ETH Zurich, Mr Ebler faced several important life decisions, including whether to further his study, which university to choose, and how to pick a research topic. Decided to continue his study, he started his doctoral research in Tsinghua University as his PhD supervisor moved to China. Following his supervisor’s relocation to Hong Kong, he continued his research in The University of Hong Kong until now. Having extensive overseas studying experience, he shared his observations over the differences among the universities, as well as the challenges he encountered in these universities. Apart from his overseas studying, he also provided precious advises on conducting postgraduate research. Some highlights include being prepared to take part in field work instead of mere literature reading, and actively engage in conferences and research collaborations.

At the end of the sharing, RPg representative and host of the event, Miss Dong Zhenzhen, Jenny (Chemistry, PhD, Year 1), thanked Mr Ebler for his impressive sharing and proceeded to present souvenir session. The event ended with group photo shooting and refreshment.
