A warm welcome to Suzie Hughes, who joins us this month to start her PhD looking into MOFs and hybrid perovskites for sensing. She got a 1st from Bath University and has experience from her Masters project on adsorption and release using flexible MOFs. We’re really excited for this science and to work with Suzie over the next few years!!
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!
