The first trimester of 2013 has passed by already and last Friday Wayne Crump delivered the results of his project, the flow of water through coffee grains (supervised by Petrik Galvosas and Stefan Hertel.) We congratulate Wayne on completing the project and wish him all the best for the rest of his honours year.

The Magnetic Resonance group would like to welcome Fangrong Zong. Our newest PhD student from China will be studying biological tissues (e.g. cancerous tissues) as a porous material and developing imaging techniques for its characterisation.
Where has the summer gone?
1 March 2013
The great summer weather continues to shine in Wellington, however time has passed so fast that over the past month and a half, we have said farewell to five students. Hope who left us in mid-January, and more recently, with in the last two weeks we've seen Stefanie and Markus head back overseas. While Steven and Dayle head back to classes for trimester 1.
The Magnetic Resonance group would like to thank you all for all the work you have put in and trust that you enjoyed your time with the group as much as we have had having you.
18-19 February 2013
Thanks to the Macdiarmid Institute for putting on the Callaghan Symposium. A two day event where friends and colleagues of Sir Paul gathered to share stories about research, life, leadership, innovation, a passion for science and the legacy he has left for us.
It was indeed a joy for the Magnetic Resonance group to be a part of the symposium, see some fantastic, passionate and often emotional talks.
For other information check out the Macdiarmid Institute website.

It's really encouraging when we see young students who are excited about science! For the next two weeks we have Hope Henry from Leeston in the laboratory. She will be getting an introduction to magnetic resonance imaging and a feel of what it's like to part of the group, it's exciting to see where she'll be in a few years time!
