Rutherford Reception

Paul and Abhijit attended the UUKi Rutherford Strategic Partner Grant Reception yesterday along with a group of Rutherford Fellows and staff from Durham. The event, which was held in the Shard, London, brought together some of the ~100 Rutherford Fellows who are currently based in 24 Universities around the UK.

Earlier this year, Paul successfully led Durham's bid to bring four Rutherford Fellows to the University for research visits during 2018/19. The four Fellows, Dr Abhijit Mallick, Dr Pavan Yerramsetti, Dr Woon Kai Lin, and Dr Ali Huerta-Flores, are currently being hosted in the Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering Departments as part of the McGonigal, Avestro, Monkman, and Groves groups. The four Rutherford Fellows and their four Hosts are pictured below.
