Several group comings and goings…

A (very) belated “welcome to the group” to Dr Marta Diez-Castellnou – who joined us in March after winning a Clarin-Cofund Postdoctoral Fellowship. And also to Marlena Bela – a Masters student from Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster, who has been with us since the start of April on an ERASMUS-funded visit.

Both have settled in so quickly that they are already making excellent contributions to our science and group dynamic…although that’s a poor excuse for me forgetting to post a welcome message!

Sadly, we now have to say “goodbye” to Lina, after 2 years with us already. How time flies. Lina, you will be sorely missed both scientifically and socially around the group, so we are glad you will be around in St Andrews for some time yet!

Finally, we also say thanks to our honours project students Tang and Daniel, who submitted their theses recently. Thanks for your hard work and good luck in the exams!
