Luke is working on the entrapment and manipulation of molecules at the nanoscale with the Nanocarbon group.
Joe is probing depositions of a photosynthetic analogue on crystal lattices using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) under ultra-high vacuum (UHV) or ambient pressure while exposed to varying wavelengths of light.
Supervisors: Graham Newton and Victor Sans Sangorrin
Lisa's work with the Newton group focuses on the study of asymmetric polyoxometalate hybrids and their potential role in catalytic systems. She is currently working on devising a reliable synthetic route to functionalise a polyoxometalate with two different organic groups.
Supervisors: Steve Howdle and Paul Brown
Ryan graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2017 with a Chemistry MSci and went on to join the LDMI DTP later that year. His research focuses on the self-assembly of block copolymers to form nanostructured materials.
Sebastian obtained his BEng in industrial engineering in 2016 and MSc in mechanical engineering in 2017. His PhD project focuses on the formation and oxidation processes of soot from modern internal combustion engines.
Supervisors: David Amabilino and Peter Beton
Catherine studied her undergraduate here at Nottingham with her master's project completed in the Amabilino group studying chiral chromophores for organic solar cells based on small organic molecules. Now she is working towards her PhD in the same group that she undertook her masters researching tailored heteroepitaxy of nanostructured thin films for de novo organic electronic devices under stress.
Supervisors: Elena Besley and Paul Brown
Edward did his masters degree at the University of Leicester finishing in June 2017. His PhD project is based on using practical and computational means to manipulate electron beam energy transfer for single atom control.

Ferdinando studied Chemistry at the University of Messina where he worked at the synthesis of calixpyrrole for supramolecular study and biological application. He got his masters degree in December 2017. His current work is focused on the synthesis of new molecules to store energy, with particular interest in surface chemistry.

Supervisors: Andrei Khlobystov, and Mike George, and Amalia Patane
Will completed his MSci project at the University of Nottingham on the topic of ionic liquids inside carbon nanotubes. As part of the LDMI DTP his work will focus on the properties and characterisation of metal oxides and semiconductors following their insertion into various nanotubes.
PhD Student, School of Physics
Supervisors: Andrei Khlobystov, and Peter Beton, and Philip Moriarty, and Alex Saywell
Tyler completed his undergraduate at the University of Nottingham, and received a First class Physics with Nanoscience MSci degree. Tyler's research currently includes characterising the surfaces of MBE-grown samples of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) on graphite using scanning probe microscopy and attempting to connect carbon nanotube contacts to surface features for electrical measurements.

Supervisors: Darren Walsh and Graham Newton
Beth graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2019 (Chemistry with a Year in Industry MSci). She completed her fourth year research project in the Walsh group where she studied the electrochemical properties of polyoxometalates encapsulated in single-walled nanotubes. She will be continuing and expanding on this research as part of her PhD.
Supervisors: David Amabilino and Lluisa Perez-Garcia
Shaun completed an integrated Masters at the University of Liverpool working around synthesis and molecular electronics. Shaun is currently looking at the synthesis of photoactive compounds and charactersing their supermolecular assemblies for photodynamic therapy and organic solar cell applications.
