One week in and I’m starting to feel at home in Oxford. As with starting any job, there’s a certain amount of routine paperwork and setting up to do and I haven’t got into the lab yet. But so far, so good. I’m working in the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, and it’s a pretty inspiring place:
Those 3 blue plaques on the wall commemorate the invention of the Glucose sensor by Allen Hill, Tony Cass and Graham Davis, John B Goodenough’s Lithium ion battery, and Dorothy Hodgkin‘s Nobel Prize-winning work in crystallography. It’s exciting, if a little overwhelming, to follow in their footsteps!
