Rita Fan, who works in the University of Bristol’s China office (In Beijing), visited the School of Chemistry this week.
Horatio and Xiaoyu showed her around our facilities – with a stop for a photo-opportunity in the teaching labs (with Charl)! Rita enjoyed wearing a white lab coat for the first time!
Bella spent the week with the Faul Research Group as part of her work experience. It was great to have her, and we certainly enjoyed the fabulous cakes she brought to say thank you!
She also made some very colourful crystals, with some of the photos sure to turn up on the Faul Research Group website! Thanks Bella!
Liam was joint winner of the recent Inorganic and Materials Section’s Final Year PhD talks! Here Liam is pictured with the two judges, Robin and Sean, and the other (joint) winner, Nicolette.
Well done Liam!
It was graduation week in Bristol, and a number of FRG members turned up over the week, dressed very smartly!
Ben, Charl and Jonny
Dicker, with collaborators Anna and Paul Weaver.
Close collaborator Natalie Fey, Ben and Charl!
Congratulations to Ben, Dicker, Jonny and all the others! Well done!
We hope that it is rather “auf Wiedersehen” rather than goodbye! Ben‘s time in the FRG is coming to an end, and we celebrated, true to group character, with food! We all headed down to the harbour side and enjoy pizza (and pies!)!
Great way to say thank you to Ben for all his efforts over the last 5 years! Enjoy the well-deserved break!
Wei, who spent a year in the FRG as CSC visitor, recently graduated from the Xi’an Jiaotong University, Xi’an, China! She sent a photo taken after receiving her degree – looking very smart! Well done, Dr Wei!
The University of Bristol launched the consultation phase of the proposed new £300m development close to Temple Meads train station – the new Temple Quarter Campus.
The development will transform the derelict post office sorting building and part of Arena Island into an open campus that will be part of the community, help to regenerate the area and benefit the whole city.
The UoB is working with communities, businesses and the council to shape future plans, which include landmark buildings for teaching, learning and collaboration, with a focus on future digital technologies. Part of the development includes a new student village and expanding the UoB’s successful enterprise hub, Engine Shed.
