We commence the year with a study by Jochen and @FlorianFeist1 in Advanced Materials https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/adma.202211074, using advanced microscopy to explore unexpected microparticle chemistry in collaboration with Rasmus Schroeder. Well done, Jochen and Florian @Cluster3DMM2O @QUTmaterials

Check out this awesome photochemistry by @HendrikFrisch from our team and Berwyck Poad @QUTmaterials just out in @angew_chem - well done and very proud of you all.

We have a PhD position opening between AStar's Institute for Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and our team @QUT @QUTmaterials. If you are interested in fusing machine learning and photochemistry in an exciting project, get in touch at any time. Retweet appreciated.
