Welcome to new PhD student Zahra Zahir, who joins us from the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka. Zahra will be working on metal complexes with redox-active ligands for valence tautomerism and inorganic molecular materials.
Congratulations to PhD student Gemma Gransbury, who has just received an RACI Postgraduate Travel Bursary. Gemma will receive $2000 to help her to attend the International Conference on Molecule-Based Magnets (ICMM2018) in Rio De Janeiro in September and to visit Professor Matthew Shores’ lab at Colorado State University to undertake solution magnetic measurements.
Congratulations to PhD student Maja Dunstan, who has just received an AINSE Postgraduate Research Award for her project “Crystal Field Excitations and Exchange Coupling in Lanthanoid Complexes by Inelastic Neutron Scattering”. Maja will receive an annual stipend of $7500 to help her perform inelastic neutron scattering measurements at ANSTO.
Congratulations to Michele Vonci on successfully completing all the requirements for his PhD degree. His thesis is titled “Synthesis and investigation of polyoxometelate-supported lanthanoid single-molecule magnets”.
Congratulations to Maja Dunstan and Jett Janetzki for making the 2017 Dean of Science’s Honour List for academic excellence in their MSc and BSc studies, respectively.
Congratulations to Fateme Akhlaghi-Bagherjeri for submitting her thesis entitled “Solution behaviour and photochromic properties of a new family of mixed-metal hybrid amino acid-polyoxometalate” and successfully completing all requirements for the PhD degree.
Congratulations to Boskovic Group MSc student Aiden Atkin on the award of an Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) Honours Scholarship for his project “Inelastic Neutron Scattering of Lanthanoid Complexes”.
Aiden has received $5,000 to provide financial support while he undertakes his research using the PELICAN neutron spectrometer at the OPAL Research Reactor at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) in Lucas Heights.
Congratulations to Olga Drath on successfully completing all the requirements for her PhD degree. Her thesis is titled “Valence tautomerism and spin-crossover in switchable cobalt coordination polymers”.
We’re very pleased to welcome Maja Dunstan back to the group for a PhD looking at INS of lanthanoid single-molecule magnets.
It was all smiles at the inaugural MolMagMel meeting on Friday, as students and staff from Monash, Melbourne and ANSTO gathered to discuss topics ranging from neutron scattering to spin crossover to molecular spintronics. Hopefully, this will become a regular event.
