Felix and Cian join the CCEM Team!

This summer we have the privilege of welcoming not one, but two PhD students to the CCEM group! Cian and Felix will be working with us over the summer as Research Assistants, and in September they will officially start as PhD students. Cian has recently finished his undergraduate degree in Chemistry with Molecular Modelling here in our very own Trinity College Dublin! He’ll be collaborating with Felix, who has just come over to Ireland from Germany after completing two undergraduate degrees and two masters degrees.

Cian and Felix will be focusing on the modelling and screening of novel catalysts for green hydrogen production. They will be doing this by developing machine learning approaches to the oxygen evolution reaction. Stay posted to see the amazing work they do!


Building Connections in KAUST!

For us academics, the summer is an important time to fully commit ourselves to research and building collaborations across the scientific community. In the spirit of this, Max has been granted a Visiting Professorship to work at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia this summer!

Max will be conducting research and working in the KAUST Catalysis Centre, which is a hub of cutting edge catalysis research. Considering the co-operation of so many experts in catalysis, we advise you to stay tuned for some incredible research!
