We have some fantastic news to share with you! Our very own Professor Max Garcia Melchor has recently been awarded the Best Young Scientist Award by the Organometallic Chemistry Group of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry! This prestigious award is one of three that the GEQO award every year.
This award targets young researchers who have made excellent contributions to the field of organometallic chemistry. Max has received this award for his work on the computational modelling of various types of metal catalysts. This news highlights the amazing work that the CCEM group has done in recent years, and sets a model for the work that we’ll continue to do.
As summer comes full swing into Ireland, the CCEM group doesn’t stop growing, and this summer will see the group at its largest yet! We are delighted to announce and welcome Panagiotis Mallis, Manting Mu, and Oscar Kelly to the group. Panagiotis, currently a student in Trinity College Dublin’s MSc in Energy Science, has joined us in order to conduct his MSc project on the elucidation of CO2 methanation processes.
Manting and Oscar are both 3rd year Chemistry undergraduates here in Trinity College Dublin. They have joined us for a summer internship and will be conducting some fascinating research involving C – H activation processes, and C – C coupling reactions respectively.
