March 2020: Rebecca and Josh's work on modelling self-assembly behaviour of opppositely charged bipatchy colloids has been published in
March 2020: Elena gives a lecture at the "Women in Chemistry" Conference and Career event held at Nottingham to celebrate International Women's Day. Her talk was entitled "MSci research project in computational chemistry: What's next?" and it showcased some of the best female Masters students she supervised over the years.
February 2020: Elena's tour of Australia begins with a Departmental Seminar at the School of Chemistry, University of Sydney, entitled
"Modelling the mechanisms of electrostatic fragmentation and self-assembly" (hosted by Prof. Peter Gill) and ends with a Keynote Lecture "Computational screening of porous materials for biogas upgrading" at the ICONN 2020 Conference in Brisbane.
January 2020: Katherine passes her viva. Very well done, Katherine!
January 2020: Elena has been awarded with a prestigious Royal Society Wolfson Fellowship (2020 - 2024). The fellowship is jointly funded by the Royal Society and the
Wolfson Foundation to support UK Universities in making strategic research appointments and retaining outstanding senior research scientists in the UK. It provides long-term flexible funding for senior career researchers in fields identified as a strategic priority for the host institution. This internationally recognised scheme covers all areas of Life and Physical Sciences including Engineering.
January 2020: Elena gives a Departmental Seminar at the Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University entitled "Electrostatic self-assembly".
