Charl in Korea and Japan

Charl is currently on a short trip to Korea and Japan with Professors Mervyn Miles and Huaxin Peng, colleagues from the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information (NSQI). He is currently in Gwangju, where he will be giving a talk at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), hosted by Prof Ji-Woong Park.

FRG members volunteer at Bisc

A number of members from the FRG helped Charl (volunteer head chef at the Bristol International Student Centre, BISC) to prepare meals for 90 people on Saturday!

Fantastic team work … and really nice hair nets! And at the end of the evening we enjoyed some of our own food, and a well-deserved break with the rest of the Bisc team!
