Michael Ruggiero

Congratulations to Camilla Terenzi, Michael Ruggiero and Daniel Markl on moving on to lectureships.

For the past two and a half years Dr Michael Ruggiero has been a postdoctoral research associate in the Terahertz Applications Group (TAG) in CEB, and is also a postdoctoral fellow at Churchill College. His research is focused on understanding the role that low-frequency (terahertz) molecular vibrations have on the structure-property relationship in molecular solids. His research is not limited, and over during his tenure at CEB he has worked on a wide-array of materials, including crystalline and disordered solids, pharmaceuticals, biologics, semiconductors, and metal-organic frameworks, to name a few.

Michael left CEB at the end of May to start his own research group as an Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont in the United States of America. His new lab, which will house two state-of-the-art lasers, a high-power amplified Ti:Sapphire femtosecond laser and a commercial terahertz time-domain spectrometer, in addition to considerable high-performance computing resources, will build on the strong foundation into terahertz dynamics he built with the TAG over the past few years. Michael very much looks forward to continuing the numerous fruitful collaborative projects he has had with the members of CEB, and to making regular visits across the pond!

Dr Camilla Terenzi was a post doc working with Prof Lynn Gladden. Her research focused on developing new spatially-resolved 1H and 13C NMR/MRI techniques, including multi-dimensional correlated spectroscopy, relaxometry and diffusometry, for improving chemical/dynamic resolution in quantitative studies of porous catalysts for industrial applications relevant to GTL, such as Fischer-Tropsch reactions. She left on 3rd June and will be an Assistant Professor at Wageningen University in The Netherlands.

Dr Daniel Markl was also a postdoc in the Terahertz Applications Group. One of his research interests was in combining experimental studies and theoretical models to develop a deeper insight into the mass transport mechanisms of pharmaceutical tablets. He left last month to take up the position of Chancellor’s Fellow at the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences.
