Today Roberta Dessi passed her PhD viva with minor corrections. Congratulations to Roberta!
During 12-16 October 20-15 Thomas Blagden from William Farr C of E Comprehensive School spent school work experience placement in our Computational Physics research group working alongside Dr Marco Pinna on modelling of soft spherical nano-containers. Thomas used modern simulation programmes developed by our academics and analysed his results using Advanced Visual Systems (AVS) software…. Read More ›
On Monday 7th of September 2015 took place the workshop “Teaching the Physical Aspects of the Molecular Biosciences” at the initiative of the British Biophysical Society (BBS). The workshop was hosted by the University of Sheffield. The aim of the workshop was principally to assess what was missing in the current physics education of students… Read More ›
