Vivas and News

In the last couple of week, Fayaz, Simon, and Amir have all passed their PhD vivas, and all only need to submit minor corrections. Congratulations to all of them.

This of course means all three, along with Leo, are leaving our group for pastures new and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours.

John Harding, Colin Freeman, and Chris Handley also received news that they had obtained funding for a CECAM workshop that they will be hosting in Sheffield next summer. The workshop - Designing Forcefields in an Age of Cheap Computing - will bring together experts from different fields of atomistic simulation to address the challenges of chemical and materials simulations in the coming years.

On the 6th of January, Chris Handley, and PhD student Robyn Ward, will be giving presentations at the N8 / CCP5 one day conference, New Approaches to Atomistic and Quantum Simulation of Materials. Chris will be talking about his work on methylammonium lead iodide, while Robyn will be talking about her work on barium titanate.
