Three new PhD students have joined the TuttleLab in 2019. Alex van Teijlingen who will be looking at using AI to help reduce the molecular search space of larger peptide sequences; Robert Cordina who is looking at using molecular simulations to understand chocolate; and Krystian Kolodziejczak who is working to continue the successful collaboration with the Murphy group in understanding organic reactivity. In addition, after the success of last year’s final year project students, we have four new project students starting in 2019 – Hamish Swanson, Duncan Ross, Benjamin Clark, and George Lawson.
The group also welcomes some new members to our lab space. The Palmer Group has relocated and now share lab space with the TuttleLab. We envision that this closer grouping of the computational and theoretical chemistry groups at Strathclyde will lead to a more stimulating environment for the group members and a greater sharing of expertise.
