We had great talks given by PhD students and PDRA from different Schools at QMUL, part of the Materials Research Institute. Below you can see the programme. We look forward to the next MRI Symposium which will take place next Spring.

Below some pictures with the winners of the best poster and best talk of this year.


Welcome to Qian Guo

Welcome Qian! Qian has just started her PhD in our group with a CSC studentship. She will be developing photocatalyst materials for decomposition of pollutants in air and water, and study the effect the microstructure has on their performance. You can learn more about Qian here.


QMUL-UCL London Energy Materials & Devices Hub Symposium

Last Friday, 13th October 2017, at QMUL we held the First Symposium of the QMUL-UCL London Energy Materials & Devices. I would like to thank you all for participating. The quality of the talks was outstanding and highlighted the excellent contribution to the field of materials for energy devices our research groups are making. Next Symposium will be organised at UCL, and hopefully we will witness numerous presentations fruit of joint collaborative research between both institutions.
