I’ve been successful in securing talk slots at ANZSMS26 in Adelaide and at the RACI Centenary Congress in Melbourne. Completing the line-up for the Australian leg of my Summer 2017 tour.

I’m now officially a H-atomer. I’m lucky to have worked with Drs. Marchetti and Karsili on a study of 2- and 3-substituted thiophenols using the famous Bristol H Rydberg atom PTS. The first study to press since I rebuilt and resuscitated the rig in 2016.
I’ve been selected to give an oral presentation for the Spectroscopy & Dynamics Group at the inaugural Faraday Joint Interest Group meeting to be held 11-13 April 2017 in Warwick.
The UV photodissociation of 2-bromothiophene was the first study to make it to press from the Bristol velocity-map imaging (VMI) rig since being overhauled for multi-mass VMI and universal detection. Accepted a mere 16 days after submission, this invited paper will soon appear online in a Special Topic Issue of J. Chem.
Phys.focusing on “Developments and Applications of Velocity Mapped Imaging Techniques”. Stay tuned.
I’ve returned from a week of free electron laser beamtime at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron in Hamburg. My colleague from Bristol, Rebecca Ingle, and I contributed to a collaboration spanning the globe and committed to unambiguously characterising ring-opening photochemistry in the gas-phase.
I’ve just returned from the annual meeting of the Southern Universities RSC Spectroscopy and Dynamics group at Nottingham University over the 22nd-23rd of September where I presented a talk on multimass VMI using the PImMS camera. I’ll be organising the 2017 annual meeting to be hosted by the University of Bristol.
We come to the end of a fruitful meeting of the Oxford and Bristol Chemical Dynamics groups hosted at Bristol and coordinated by myself.
A lot of productive discussion followed short talks on the joint EPSRC Programme Grant activities. See many of you in two days time at SUSDG!
The strongest experimentally-observed gas-phase base has been reported in Chemical Science. The result of an exciting collaboration spanning the University of Wollongong, Queensland University of Technology, Australian
National University and University of Sydney.
