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.

Welcome to the ISPG, Antonio and Jack!

The ISPG welcomes two new members!

Dr. Antonio Prlj joined us as a Postdoctoral Researcher working on the excited-state dynamics of atmospheric molecules – financed by the ERC StG project SINDAM.
