Case Studies

Siân Dutton

Siân was one of the first Winton Fellows joining the Cavendish in January 2012, after a postdoc in Princeton University. Siân's interdisciplinary research program is focused on understanding and manipulating complex solids to control their physical properties for use in rechargeable batteries and solid state magnetic cooling. As a Winton Fellow she established a new materials synthesis laboratory in the Department, in addition to using shared facilities in the departments of Physics and Chemistry. In 2015, Siân was appointed to a University Lectureship and in early 2016 moved an expanded laboratory for materials synthesis and characterisation into the Maxwell Centre.

Alex Chin

Alex joined the Programme in 2012 following a Postdoctoral Researcher position at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Ulm University.  His research is focused on the theoretical aspects of ultrafast non-equilibirum quantum dynamics, and combines analytical and numerical techniques from condensed matter theory, quantum optics and physical chemistry to explore the (quantum) design principles which optimise light-harvesting in natural photosynthesis and next-generation organic photovoltaics. Alex now holds a permanent position at the L'Institute des NanoSciences de Paris, which is part of the Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique  (CNRS).
