Oxford Colloid Group undergoes rapid expansion

The Oxford Colloid Group is pleased to announce the arrival of twelve new members in recent months.

First to arrive at the beginning of September was a new Marie Curie Fellow, Dr Ivo Buttinoni, who joins us from the Isa group at ETH Zurich and will work on active matter and driven systems in the group, with a particular focus on stochastic thermodynamics and optical manipulation.

At the end of September we were joined by our latest cohort of Part IIs: Miranda Bell-Davies, Ruth Bradley, Han Sol Jeon, Jeroen Rijks, Muhammad Sulaiman and Caitlin Tickell. They will be with us for twelve months while they complete the final year of their MChem degrees, which in Oxford is devoted entirely to research.

Finally, at the beginning of October, we were reunited with Balkis Dohni and Carla Fernandez Rico, who have both previously completed research internships in the group, as well as previous Part II students Lachlan Alexander, Joseph Hutchinson and Nicholas Orr. They have all joined the group as DPhil students and are excited to get their teeth into their projects.

More details on individuals can be found on our People pages.

Note that Nicholas Orr was absent on the day of the photographs.
