Graduate Student
Garrick Lim

Born and raised in tropical Singapore, Garrick earned his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at the National University of Singapore in 2019, specializing in materials chemistry. There, Garrick worked on a variety of material science research projects ranging from cholesteric liquid crystals for temperature history recording and sensing of volatile organic compounds (Prof Kun-Lin Yang), to synthesizing multi-layered core-shell near-infrared semiconducting quantum dots for light harvesting and bioimaging applications (Prof Zhi-Kuang Tan). He spent a gap year after graduation at Singapore's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering, investigating 2D transition metal carbides (MXenes) and their heterostructures for efficient electrocatalysis (Prof Zhi Wei Seh). Garrick eventually swapped the tropical weather for the Boston cold in 2020, joining the Aizenberg group to explore new methodology in colloidal and advanced material synthesis. Outside of the lab, Garrick runs regularly and looks forward to running along the Charles river with the Cambridge/Boston running community.
