New MSci project students!

This month we are joined by Matthew Liddle and Samuel Gale, who will be carrying out their Masters research projects with the group. Matt’s project is looking at phase behaviour of a carboxyphosphonate MOF, BIRM-1, which has potential use in ion exchange and transport. Sam’s project is investigating relationships between the physical properties of hybrid perovskite ferroelectrics and their structural chemistry.

Both Sam and Matt also have a second co-supervisor, Prof Paul Anderson, as well as his PhD student Joe Barker, who joins us as an honorary group member involved in day-to-day supervision of the projects.

Welcome, Sam, Matt and Joe!

MSci project hand-in

Congratulations to Vicky and Matt for handing in their MSci theses today!

The group celebrated the occasion with a wonderfully al-fresco lunch and bubbly at Joe’s bar. Much like today’s weather, the projects this year were not exactly free from disruption but Vicky and Matt both did a great job nevertheless!

It was great to have you in the group – good luck for all your future endeavours and well done again!
