Oct 2018: Congratulations Tilo!

Congratulations to Tilo Zollitsch on his succesful DPhil viva with Profs Robert Bittl (Berlin) and Claire Vallance (Oxford). Tilo's thesis "Investigation of Magnetic field Effects on Protein Photochemistry using Cavity Enhanced Spectroscopy" includes cavity ringdown studies of real and de novo protein systems in an attempt to unravel the mechanism behind animal magnetoreception. Oh, and he had a quite spectactular hat (doktor-Hut) !

Oct 2018: Mackenzie group welcomes new starters

We welcome two new DPhil students, Gabriele Meizyte and Hang Zhou as well as three part II students, Jess Walton (New College), Sean Kealy (Worcester) and Jack Pickering (Keble).

Sept 2018: Alice's Angewandte Paper published!

This work, a collaboration with Andre Fielicke in Berlin, describes a combined free electron laser / DFT study of size-selective CO2 activation on anionic platinum clusters. Angewandte 10.1002/anie.201809099.

Jul 2018: 3 Part IIs, 3 1st Class thesis marks!
