ECSSC comes to Glasgow

The 16th European Conference on Solid State Chemistry was held at the University of Strathclyde in July 2017 and was co-organised by Serena and Eddie Cussen. We had the enormous pleasure of hosting our colleagues from around the world in Glasgow for this meeting, where we had a range of excellent scientific talks and discussions across all aspects of solid state chemistry. Many thanks to members of the Corr and Cussen research groups for their help in organising this event, which included a conference banquet at the historic Kelvingrove Art Museum (seom of us are pictured below). Looking forward to ECSSC 2019!

Poster prize to Enrique

Congratulations to PhD student Enrique Sanchez who was awarded the best poster presentation prize at the recent 7th Chemical Nanoscience Symposium in Newcastle (CNSN-7). The meeting also saw our collaborator Dr Gemma-Louise Davies take home a prize for best talk by an early career researcher. Congratulations!

Congratulations to Josefa!

Huge congratulations to Josefa who has successfully completed her PhD viva! Josefa will shortly be leaving us to take up a postdoctoral position at the EMPA, Switzerland. Though we will miss her, we all wish Josefa the very best with her new job. Congratulations Dr Vidal Laveda!

Serena presents at the Mary Rose

Serena traveled to the Mary Rose to give a public lecture on our groups conservation efforts using magnetic nanoparticles to treat waterlogged wood samples. Our work is funded by the Leverhulme Trust, in collaboration with researchers at Warwick University and the Mary Rose.  This meeting was a great opportunity to hear about the various conservation strategies ongoing at the Mary Rose and a chance to visit the wonderful Mary Rose museum!
