Katy Ainsworth joined the group over summer as a Metals DTC Student, she will be working on silver nanowires for transparend conductor applications. Halil Yilmaz has joined having just finished an Advanced Engineering Materials MSc project. He will be looking at the mechanical properties of bcc nanowires. Two new students are co-supervised with Ian Kinloch, they are Marayam Saeed who will be studying the CVD of graphene on liquid substrates and Samir Al-Hilfi who will be investigating CVD graphene on Cu and Cu-Ni substrates. Full Bios to follow.
Not too long ago we heard of the sad news of Matt Barwick passing away after suffering from brain cancer. Matt completed his PhD in the School of Materials and was married to Oriel Barwick nee Goodman, who was a former member of the Derby Group. Oriel’s Phd work characterised damage on glass surfaces using SAM and nanoindentation. Oriel will be cycling around Vietnam to raise money for the hospice that looked after Matt during his final days. Please donate generously!
