Dr James McGregor is leaving the department today, 14 September, 2012, to take up a lectureship at Sheffield University.
James did his first degree at the University of Edinburgh and then came to Cambridge for his PhD. He submitted a thesis entitled, "Heterogeneous catalysis hydrogenation and dehydrogenation: catalysts and catalytic processes" and gained his doctorate in 2007.
He stayed on at the department as a post doctoral researcher and became a lecturer in 2010. He has continued to work on catalysis and he and his group aim to further the development of a fundamental understanding of heterogeneous catalysts and catalytic processes by relating catalytic activity to the environment in which catalysis takes place.

We would like to thank him for the huge amount of effort he's put into research and teaching, not only during his temporary lectureship but also during his PhD and postdoc days. We wish him every success and happiness in the future.
