You wait a year for a Dphil viva and then two come along within a month.... congratulations to Dean Sheppard on success in his DPhil viva. The examiners, Profs Andrew Orr-Ewing (Bristol) and Nick Green were impressed by Dean's development of novel optical-cavity techniques for the measurement of magnetic field effects in proteins.Dean takes up a number of stipendiary lectureships teaching physchem for Trinity and Magdalen College.
The Mackenzie group wecomes four new members: Alice Green joins us for a DPhil from St Andrew's and Dan Price (Oriel), Ben Atkinson (Magdalen) and Malcolm Kittle (Oriel) join as Part II students
Congratulations to Graham Cooper on success in his DPhil viva. Graham leaves us for a postdoc position at Newcastle with Dr Nick Walker. Good luck!
More congratulations to Emrys and Daniel as their Flavin / Ascorbic Acid MFE study is published in JCP .
A fantastic result for Mackenzie group Part IIs, Rhiannon Main (SEH) and Ed Barnard (SHU) both of whom gained 1st class Part II results in July!
Congratulations to Emrys and Daniel and the wider CRT / PJH/ SRM MFE collaboration on the Nature Chemistry article describing chemical amplification of magnetic field effects.
Congratulations to all involved with the silver atom - rare gas VMI paper which has been published in J. Chem. Phys. which significantly improves the known dissociation energies for Ag-RG (RG = Ar, Kr, Xe) and for AgO
