We have an exciting new position for a Research Assistant/Associate in our group to work on the fundamental kinetics of low concentration methane oxidation via catalysis, photocatalysis and electrochemical canversion to remove atmospheric greenhouse gases. https://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/37891/
Molly Haugen was interviewed by the Bradfield Centre for the new mini-CPC being developed in our group.
David O’Loghlin won the Audience’s Best Poster Prize and was runner up as the Judge’s Best Poster Prize at the School of Biosciences DTP Symposium for Analysis of Metals in Tyre Rubbers.
Popular press article examining hugs and the impacts from aerosols. Not the most scientifice, but at least interviewed scientists on the subject. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/hugging-pandemic_uk_5f574715c5b62b3add4553fa?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAABWPFw_mbCCLMcxmEcfGIpoGZz3TbC1STRRJWAHg97Or7AYeZvK4l3SouAfZ4Y7YnpgfUGrbO8veqmJ-Cg6jnr3jxur4R-MIGXrlZh1lxfDyrBzmldNT7-pCBttTT0-u-bdDRrGoQrdoGyEFfG3yx3NpGYmmyJro0GMai4EtzUvc
Our recent study Scientific Reports with lead authors Brian Graves, Tyler Johnson and Robert Nishida has shown that marijuana smoke is strikingly similar to tobacco smoke with similar quantities of solid particles, tar and carcinogens. Surprisingly few studies have examined the similarities between the two.
Molly Haugen passed her drone (UAV) training and becomes the first female licensed pilot at Cambridge University. She will be using this work to measure air quality and shipping emissions in association with the Boies and Mastorakos groups for a project funded by the Cambridge-Singapore project, CARES . Way to go Molly!
Congratulations to Robert Nishida for winning the 2019 doctoral thesis prize from the UK Aerosol Society for his dissertation on “Measuring aerosol nanoparticles by ultraviolet photoionisation”.
