Peter joined the group as a postdoc at the start of 2022 to work on mode selective chemistry of metal clusters. He completed a BSc(Hons) and PhD in chemistry at the University of Western Australia studying photoelectron spectroscopy. He’ll gladly discuss any and all dangerous Australian animals
Ed is designing a new instrument to study mode-selective reactions involving metal clusters and ion-molecule complexes. He joined us in 2019 having completed a MSci (Chemistry) in Birmingham including a final year project with the late Roy Johnston. Ed is a Thatcher Scholar at Somerville College.
Philip completed his MChem at Warwick in 2020 and joined us for a DPhil studying spectroscopy and reactions of metal-containing clusters and complexes. He is a Bob Thomas scholar at University College.
Laurynas completed his two undergraduate degrees in Physics and Chemistry at Sorbonne Université in Paris, France. During that time, Laurynas went on exchange to Sweden to work as an undergraduate researcher in Chemical Physics at Stockholm University and a tutor in Physics. Laurynas joined in 2022 for an MSc (Res) at Saint Hilda's College and studies magnetic field effects on cryptochromes using fluorescence spectroscopy and microfluidics.
Alice joined the group as a DPhil student from St. Andrew's in 2016. Funded by a Beghian Scholarship from Magdalen College, she graduated in 2020 and stayed as an EPSRC Programme Grant Postdoctoral Researcher. She moved on to a post in Stanford in 2021.
Olivier joined the MFE group at the start 2021. He completed a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in physics from the University of Montreal before moving to Toronto to do a PhD in chemistry to studying proteins with ultrafast spectroscopy. Olivier is also proud to be a Canadian stereotype who talks too much "aboat" snow and maple syrup. He left for a further postdoctoral position in germany in Feb 2023.
Aras joined us from Munich on a Royal Society Newton Fellowship to work on IR spectroscopy of ion-molecue complexes and velocity map imaging of metal-containing molecules. He then returned to the Chemistry Department at the Technical University Munich
Scott joined us in Cambridge and then moved with the group to Oxford in 2008. He developed the velocity map imaging experiment for studying metal-containing molecules and clusters. He is now full Professor in Waterloo Univeristy, Canada.
Mikhail joined us in Warwick to work on evanescent wave cavity ring-down. He moved witht he group first to Cambridge and then to Oxford and was instrumental in making these moves efficient. He now works at the Helmholtz Zentrum Institute for Biological and Medical Imaging in Munich
