Ben + Andy Join the Foster Group

The Foster group are welcoming new PhD students this year, Ben and Andy, who have both joined us until 2024.

Ben obtained his MSc with distinction in green chemistry and sustainable industrial technology from York last academic year. His research will be a joint synthetic and spectroscopic study of the enhancement of the selectivity of graphene-based sensors by the addition of our MONs, with the aim of real-time detection of phosphate and other small molecules in soil.

Andy (Jiangtian) has been with us previously in 2019 as an MSc student. He joins us this year as a PhD student, working on mixed matrix membranes MON systems for water purification applications.

Welcome guys!
