Publicity and Outreach

Group Leader Chick Wilson was fortunate enough to win the Thomas Graham medal of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow in 2011, delivering "excellent research to a general audience" in a lively meeting!

The group are heavily engaged with a range of activities attempting both to disseminate our research and pass on our excitement about science.  You will find us regularly at Science Fairs, in Cafes and pubs and other odd places, in schools and colleges, demonstrating "Spectroscopy in a Suitcase" and just generally spreading the word!


Some recent activities and publicity can be found below.

Group Leader Chick Wilson has delivered a number of public lectures and discussions over the last few years, largely on the topics of:

"Mysterious case of Misbehaving Molecules!" 

"Discovery of the Elements: Geography and Fame"

and a new offering

"Making Things Work min the Mysterious Metastable World"


Locations include The Pint of Scence Festival, Cafes Scientifique, Talking Science (Daresbury), the Thomas Graham Lecture (Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgw), The Gilmorehill G12 Theatre, and a range of schools and colleges.


An interview with the magazine Laboratory News can be found here.

Group Leader Chick Wilson is part of a team awarded £1.5M EU ERDF funding for Sustainable Technologies.  The team is led by Prof Matt Davidson, of the Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies, and is a collaboration with the Univ Innovation Centre

Work led by Dr Karen Robertson and Pierre-Baptiste Flandrin has been featured by our industrial collaborator Vapourtec, with whom we have been working to develop capabilities for particle control within flow chemistry.

Lauren Agnew recently undertook a four-month secondment at Astra Zeneca as part of the CMAC industrial placements scheme.  Lauren writes about her experience here, and liked it so much she has recently taken up a position at AZ!

The group were well represented at the recent ISIC20 conference in Dublin, with posters from Lauren Agnew, Ruth Lunt and Lois Wayment, and Alex Cousen presenting a talk at the meeting.
