SCIENTIST NEXT DOOR – Let’s have fun with science during the lockdown!!!

An amazing initiative from Dr. Erastova (University of Edinburgh) with a contribution from the ISPG!

We are a small group of scientist and we aim to bring together communities during the lockdown and homeschooling. We are here to share with children our passion for science, hoping more of you will find it as exciting!

Join us on the dedicated website www.scientist-next-door.org and contribute to the forum!

 

Welcome to the ISPG, Maru, Lewis, Emanuele and Joe!

The ISPG welcomes four new members!

María Eugenia Sandoval-Salinas (Maru) joined the group as a visiting PhD Student. She will be working on the photochemistry of energy-related small molecules.

Lewis Hutton and Emanuele Marsili are new PhD Students in the group, financed by the ERC StG project SINDAM. They will work on the role of nonadiabatic processes in the photochemistry of Volatile Organic Compounds.

Joe Cooper is a 4th-year project student at Durham University. He will work on the excited-state dynamics of pyrone and coumarin.

The ISPG in the Young Scientists Virtual Special Issue of the Journal of Physical Chemistry!

Our recently accepted article comparing surface hopping and multiple spawning for photoexcitation processes has just been published in J. Phys. Chem. A as part of the Young Scientists Virtual Special Issue!
