Huge congratulations to Pongsathon (Nan) Boonrod who passed her viva remotely from Thailand with minor corrections. Thank you to Prof Annela Seddon (@Pingosaurus, Bristol) and Dr Tim Easun (@TimEasun, Cardiff) for their time as examiners.
Pleased to welcome (from left to right) Shaohua (perylene diimide self-assembling materials), Ziqiu, Leo (biocompatible polymeric actuators), Daniel (conjugated microporous materials for antibacterial applications) and Jerry (perylene-based polyimide networks for CO2 capture and conversion).
Shaohua, Ziqiu, Leo and Jerry are Bristol undergraduates joining the group for summer projects and Daniel joins to complete his MSc associated with the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials.
Dr Ben Baker, PDRA in the Faul Research Group working on the multidisciplinary emPOWER project (creating artificial implantable muscles) has recently attended the Materials Research Society (MRS) meeting in Honolulu. Ben was awarded a $500 prize for the best oral presentation in the SF13 (Novel Actuators) session. Well done, Ben!
Congratulations to Ulia for securing the Dalton Transaction award for her poster at the 5th annual UK Porous Materials Interest Group’s conference in Glasgow.
Delighted to be posting about the freshly published Research Excellence Framework results in which the School of Chemistry @Bristol is ranked #1 in the UK for research. A great effort from all staff, researchers and technicians that contribute to the internationally recognised outputs from the work conducted within this building.
Congratulations to all presenting their work (both visually and orally) at this year’s spring MRS meeting and exhibit in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

Interested in multidisciplinary MRes project relating to soft robotics, smart structures, polymer chemistry and healthcare? Announcing an exciting opportunity linked to emPOWER Transformative Healthcare Technologies – a UKRI-EPSRC funded research programme focusing on in-body artificial muscles for physical augmentation, function restoration, patient empowerment & future healthcare.
#RSCPoster is a global Twitter poster conference taking place entirely online over the course of a day. The event aims to bring together the global chemistry community allowing for interaction with chemists and researchers at various career stages. This year (2022), the Faul Group presents two posters from both Safa and Ulzhalgas, highlighting their work within the functional porous polymer field (see below).
