Promotions for Julia Weinstein and Jim Thomas

Julia Weinstein Jim ThomasOur department has recently seen the promotion of dr. Julia Weinstein and Prof. Jim Thomas.

Jim Thomas was awarded a professorial chair for his research into luminescent metal complexes that interact with ions, molecules, and biomolecules such as DNA. This work has produced a number of new biological probes and therapeutic leads. Jim says that the promotion was; "thanks to the hard work of his research group and our collaborators in Sheffield and elsewhere around the world."

Julia Weinstein was awarded a readership in physical chemistry  for her work on the ultrafast dynamics of electron and energy transfer in the condensed phase. Her research has focused on using transition-metal complexes for the conversion of light into energy and like Jim Thomas' research is highly collaborative in nature.

Congratulations to both|
