Esther joins the group

Welcome to Dr Esther Rani Aluri who joins us as a postdoctoral researcher from Saskatchewan, Canada. Esther completed her PhD there in 2015 with Professor Andrew Grosvenor, where she investigated solid-state materials for nuclear waste immobilization applications using synchrotron facilitated X‑ray techniques. Before that, Esther was a junior research Fellow at IIT Madras in India.… Continue reading Esther joins the group

Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures

Congratulations to Tom, whose recent work on microwave synthesis of VO2 nanostructures and the evaluation of their electrochemical performance has been accepted for publication in a special issue on Energy Materials in Acta Cryst B. The use of microwave synthesis has driven down reaction times to three hours and yields thinner nanowires compared to those… Continue reading Changes in electrochemical performance in VO2(B) nanostructures

Leverhulme grant award to Corr group

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… Continue reading Leverhulme grant award to Corr group
