Research Project: Effects of X-ray radiation in Small Molecular Crystals
Anna Regoutz (UCL), Andrew Cairns (Imperial)

Nathalie graduated with an MSci in Physics from UCL in 2017. Her Master’s project was an X-ray diffraction study of the Memory Effect observed in Layered Double Hydroxides. For her PhD, in the Applied X-ray Spectroscopy group under the supervision of Dr. Anna Regoutz at Imperial and Dr. Robert Palgrave at UCL, she is studying the structural and electronic radiation damage to catalyst materials. This will involve both lab and synchrotron based XRD and XPS characterisation.
