Ryan joined the group as a PhD student in April 2021, studying
heterogeneous metal-semiconductor materials for organic transformations.
He received his MSci in Chemistry in 2019 from the University of Nottingham,
completing his final year research supervised by Prof. Woodward. When
outside of the Lab,
Ryan enjoys his free time woodworking to make various pieces of furniture,
historical sabre fencing, or occasionally hiking in various National Parks.
Pekka is a student in the
CDT in Sustainable Chemistry and joined the
Lanterna group in July 2021. Pekka’s PhD project concentrates on metal-organic framework-supported
metal clusters for photocatalytic CO2 reutilisation and it is co-supervised by
Pekka is originally from Finland and received his Master’s degree in
Chemistry at the University of Eastern Finland in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Mika Suvanto
and Dr. Niko Kinnunen. On his free time, he likes to go for long walks, play guitar, travel and
sometimes go to the pub for a pint.
Efficient metal-semiconductor heterojuntions for generation of green hydrogen.
Ruth started her PhD with the Lanterna group in October 2021, after graduating from the University
of Nottingham in 2020 with an MSci in Chemistry. As a student in the
her project focuses on charge-transfer metal-semiconductor heterojunctions for green Hydrogen
generation and it is co-supervised by Elena Besley.
Outside of the lab, she enjoys attending music events and festivals, cooking, and walking her dog
We welcome highly-motivated students and
postdoctoral researchers to join us on our research adventure.
