Congratulations to Marco who has been awarded the Mac Robertson Travel Scholarship! Marco will be using his award to travel to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to work with Professor Marca Doeff’s group for three months. Congratulations Marco!
Congratulations to Josefa and Marco who have been awarded travel bursaries from the Glasgow and West of Scotland Local Section. Josefa will attend the International Battery Association meeting in Nantes in March 2016, while Marco will travel to Chicago for the 18th International Meeting on Lithium Batteries. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Josefa who has been awarded a travel bursary to attend the RSC Energy Sector Early Career Chemists event to be held at the Royal Society of Chemistry in February 2016. Congratulations!
Our recent Leverhulme award to work on the development of nanostructured magnetic composites for treatment of wooden artefacts from the Mary Rose has been highlighted by the Trust on their website. You can read more about our current research in this area here:
The Leverhulme Trust have awarded a £262k grant for a project led by Dr Serena Corr titled “Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites for artefact conservation”. This project, in collaboration with Dr Eleanor Schofield at the Mary Rose Trust and Professor Rachel O’Reilly at Warwick University, will use smart nanocomposite materials to treat waterlogged wood from Henry VIII’s flagship, the Mary Rose.
Congratulations to Josefa who was awarded a travel bursary from the RSC Solid State group. Josefa travelled to the Gordon Research Conference on Solid State Compounds and Materials for Emerging Technologies and Sustainable Energy Generation. You can read Josefa’s report on the meeting in the latest RSC Solid State Group newsletter, here.
The group have been awarded a SUPERGEN Energy Storage Challenge grant from the EPSRC for £1.2 million. The project, entitled “Design and high throughput microwave synthesis of Li-ion battery materials”, brings together groups from Glasgow (Dr Serena Corr [PI], Prof Duncan Gregory, Prof Nikolaj Gadegaard), Strathclyde (Dr Eddie Cussen), Loughborough (Dr Pooja Panchmatia), UCL (Dr David Scanlon), Oxford (Prof Andrew Goodwin) and ISIS (Dr Peter Baker) to establish new routes to high performance Li-ion battery materials.
