Kate attended the ISIS Student Meeting this week, which took place at Cosener’s House in Abingdon. It was an excellent opportunity to meet other PhD students at all stages of their research, from chemistry as well as physics and engineering backgrounds. The 4th annual quiz was also good fun!
Kate delivered a 90 second elevator pitch, alongside a poster on her work so far, entitled “Inorganic and Inorganic-Organic Hybrid Analogues of S = ½ Kagome Antiferromagnets.” Presentations covered a range of different topics, spanning the array of science performed at ISIS, from materials chemistry to engineering. Kate particularly enjoyed Marta Crisanti’s (University of Warwick) talk on the effects of confinement and pressure on the skyrmion lattice, which Marta studies under the joint supervision of Prof Don Paul (Warwick) and Dr Robert Cubitt (ILL).
