Trip to York and Leeds

Despite regular Skype calls, sometimes a collaboration needs a visit, and so I travelled up to York at the start of June to meet with Dr Jason Lynam and catch up about our project. With our initial publication out (see Organometallics, 2014, 33, 1751-1791), this was a great opportunity to catch up and make plans for future papers and new projects.

Before returning to Bristol, I then attended the Annual Meeting of the National Federation of Women’s Institutes. For theĀ Picture It… Chemistry project we are developing a series of workshops for WI federations and they very kindly invited me along to the Annual Meeting to find out more about the organisation and meet some members of the Board. And yes, there was “Jerusalem“! At the moment, this is also on the WI’s Media Centre page, here.
