PhD Studentship in the Atmospheric Chemistry Group

A PhD studentship is available to UK home students for research focusing on autoxidation chemistry of peroxy radicals. This project will provide detailed understanding of atmospheric chemistry and advanced training on laser instrumentation and numerical tools for analysing complex data. Further details are provided in the link here.

Introduction to Data Analysis using Python/Jupyter Notebook

Python is a popular programming language in sciences, engineering and social sciences to analyze data. It is also a popular scripting language in web application and computer-aided design communities. Python is a great first programming language to learn as the programming syntax are easily readable. It is also freely available and there are loads of learning materials in YouTube, GitHub, stack overflow etc.

Numerical Integration using Python

Kinetic phenomena are ubiquitous in science and engineering research. A nice introduction to chemical kinetics is presented in this wikipedia page. Modelling kinetic systems involves solving set of coupled ordinary differential equation either analytically, for small systems, or numerically, for large systems. Scientific experiments under controlled environment are able to isolate various kinetic pathways andContinue reading “Numerical Integration using Python”

Further Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal

After the successful colorimetry outreach in Kathmandu last year, RCP was back in Kathmandu this year too (October 2019) for another outreach event. Similar to the last year, RCP brought the colorimeter kits from the University of Bristol, UK. However, this year the colorimeter instruments were purchased using the Natural Environmental Research Council grant NE/P013104/1Continue reading “Further Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal”

Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal

Nepal is a landlocked developing country in south Asia between China and India. It is home to 25 million people of various ethnicities including Gurkhas and Sherpas, and to the tallest mountain range in the world. The Bristol ChemLabS outreach was performed at the Loyola Secondary School in Kathmandu, in collaboration with the Department ofContinue reading “Colorimetry Outreach in Nepal”
