Tracking Dr McMullin…

Dr Claire McMullin presenting her work at ICOMC in Lisbon (Sept. 2012)

Fey (and Orpen) group alumnus Claire has been busy since passing her PhD viva in July last year. In August 2011 she relocated to Texas for a postdoctoral position with Prof. Tom Cundari at the University of North Texas in Denton. Two UNT papers on which she is a co-author are already published and listed on the Web of Knowledge (one in Inorganic Chemistry and the other one in JACS) and I know that several others are on the way as well, including at least one in Polyhedron where she is first author.

As if that wasn’t enough, she also gave her first talk at an international conference at the recent ICOMC in Lisbon about a different project in Tom’s group, and she has just returned to the UK to take up a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. Stuart Macgregor at Heriot-Watt up in Edinburgh.

Claire has also been back to Bristol a couple of times (despite the transatlantic flights), in February for her PhD graduation and more recently in August to nudge me into making progress with publishing a few more of the results from her thesis. So look out for more papers with C. L. McMullin as the co-author…

Congratulations Claire on a really busy and productive year!
