Unfortunately Dr Ben Williamson and Dr Adam Jackson’s time in the group is coming to a close, and they are moving on the bigger (and maybe better) things! Ben will be moving to the Ceramics Group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology to work with Professor Sverre Magnus Selbach, and Adam will be taking up a position with the STFC Scientific Computing Division at Harwell. We will miss them both very much! Ben has been with the group from day one, as he was David’s first Masters student back in 2014!

As part of the UCL – Tokyo Institute of Technoloy core-to-core project, we were very happy to welcome Professor Fumiyasu Oba and two of his students to visit and discuss science. Of course we had to have them try a UCL staple: an all you can eat buffet from the curry houses on Drummond Street!

David, Adam, Alex, Ben, Chris and Katie attended the Gordon Research Conference on Defects in Semiconductors which was held in Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire, USA. The conference was fantastic, with plenty of great science, great food and interesting excursions!

Our three MSci students Alex Squires, James Bolland and Nana Baffour recieved their degrees in the big tent on Russell Square. It was great to be able to share a glass of bubbly with them as they depart on their post UCL journey. Alex is heading to the University of Bath to do a PhD with Dr Ben Morgan, James is working for npower, and Nana is going to train to be a lawyer.
