Jim

Jim Morrey

Hi I’m Jim, the new mass spec technician in the chemistry department.

I will be working with Dr. Lijiang Song to keep the mass spec service up and running, including maintenance of the wide variety of mass spec instruments here at Warwick, carry out training for new users and offering assistance to those who need it, as well as running analyses for students and staff as required.

I come from a background in physics but have spent the last 3 years working with mass spec in a food research company in Gloucestershire. In my spare time I enjoy playing cricket and kayaking and I also confess that I am a Morris dancer.

Feel free to say hi anytime, my desk is in room A112 with the Chem-Tech team.

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Slava SHKIRSKIY

Slava Shkirskiy

My name is Viacheslav Shkirskiy but you can call me Slava. I just recently joined Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group led by Prof. Patrick Unwin as a Marie Curie Fellow.

I studied at Moscow State University (Bachelor and Masters) and have a lot of expertise in corrosion, electrochemistry and various microscale electrochemical techniques and microscopy. I received my PhD in physical and analytical chemistry, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France, and have held postdoc positions in Laboratoire Interfaces et Systèmes Electrochimiques, Paris and at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, Düsseldorf. Please see my website for more information: http://www.shkirskiy.org/

In my spare time I like to go hiking, do outdoor and indoor climbing and play chess with my friends.

You are always welcome to come and meet me in the office C112 on the first floor in Chemistry department.

CI

Cinzia Imberti

My name is Cinzia Imberti and I have recently joined the department as a Sir Henry Wellcome postdoctoral fellow in Peter Sadler’s group.

I recently completed a PhD in Imaging Chemistry at King’s College London, where I focused on radiometal-based imaging. In my project I will combine my expertise in radionuclide imaging with Sadler’s group expertise in medicinal inorganic chemistry, with the aim of elucidating the mechanism of action of platinum anticancer drugs. My project will be mainly based in Warwick, with secondments at King’s College London and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre (New York).

When I am not in the lab I like to be involved in public engagement events such as Pint of Science (which I have been organising for 2 years at King’s). I also like running, practicing yoga and hanging out with friends, whether it is just having a beer in the pub, enjoying a home-cooked dinner or making a fool of ourselves at the karaoke!

Come and find me to say Hi in office C411 (first desk on the left)!

GM

Gabriel Meloni

Hey there! I am Gabriel Meloni and I just (re)joined the Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group (WEIG) as a Marie Curie Fellow under the supervision of Prof. Patrick Unwin.

Both my Bachelor and PhD degree are in chemistry and were obtained at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP) in Brazil, where I was born and raised. During my PhD I tackled the development of new multifunctional probes for Electrochemical Imaging techniques with a deeper focus on Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (SECM). Part of my project was developed here at Warwick with Prof. Patrick Unwin when I spent 1 year as a visiting PhD student and gained a deeper understanding on Electrochemical Imaging and also, and not least important, made good friends which I am very happy to see again!

Electronics, 3D printing and woodworking are sort of hobbies of mine (way before “maker” was cool). I also enjoy Photography. Ah, I do practice BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu) whenever I have time!

Come say hi to me at office C110, I might still have some Brazilian sweets with me!
