Invited webinar on Marie Curie Individual Fellowship and RISE programs

On Wed. 9th Feb., T. Derrien delivered an invited presentation at the webinar “Why do researchers need to be mobile?”, organized by the Mendel University (Brno, Czech Republic) in context of the EU project “ASFORCLIC”. The webinar also included a presentation of Fullbright fellowships (Czech <-> USA exchanges), COST actions and Erasmus+.

As fellow of Marie Curie individual fellowship and main contact of Atlantic project in the Czech Republic, T. Derrien presented the outcomes of the two mobility projects on career development.

New PhD student is joining the group!

A new student will be joining our group soon. MSc. Ghassan ABER is from Casablanca (Morocco), and he will be working on time-dependent density functional theory. Within the group, he will support the TDDFT activities with comparison to experimental results obtained by various collaborators, along with preparing his PhD thesis at the HiLASE Centre. He will also contribute to the ATLANTIC project. We are very much looking forward!
