Teaching Award for Fellow in Experimental Psychology

Dr Gaia Scerif, the College’s Tutorial Fellow in Experimental Psychology, has won a divisional “Teaching Excellence” award, in the “Excellent Teacher Category”. These are presented by the Medical Sciences Division annually.

These awards formally recognise the excellent contributions to teaching and/or supervision made by individual members of Collegiate University and NHS staff within the Division. This award comes in addition to her Oxford Teaching Excellence award for Innovation in Teaching in 2012.

Cameron Mackintosh Inaugural Lecture - Stephen Fry

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Stephen Fry as the 23rd holder of the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professorship in Contemporary Theatre.

Actor, writer, television and radio presenter, Stephen Fry is a true polymath. His career has ranged over stage, film, radio and television. He recently performed the role of Malvolio in Twelfth Night at Shakespeare’s Globe and on Broadway to critical acclaim, and was recently named by Debrett’s as one of the most influential and inspiring British people working with the charitable sector.

Catz announced as 2012-2013 Cuppers Champions!

The annual Oxford University Sports Awards were celebrated at a prestigious ceremony held on Friday 15 November 2013 at the OURFC grounds.

Over 200 current students and alumni gathered to reflect on the 2012-2013 sporting season and honour each other’s achievements, with Catz collecting the overall Cuppers Trophy for last year!

Among other sporting achievements, Catz came top in Women’s Football, and reached the finals in Tennis, Five-a-Side and Hockey.

Critically-acclaimed Catz Alumnus Directs New Play

Catz alum James Phillips (1996, English) has written and directed a new play, Hidden In The Sand, which opened in London earlier in the month.

Based on the aftermath of the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, Hidden In The Sand is a love story interwoven with politics. Set between London and Cyprus, the play follows the fortunes of a displaced Greek Cypriot tied to the past.

MChemPhys Edin, DPhil Oxf

Teaching
For 7 years I have tutored a range of topics to undergraduates at St Catherine’s, focussed on fundamentals such as kinetics, thermodynamics, electrochemistry and also applied materials problems such as corrosion and surfaces/interfaces.

About me
After my Master in Chemical Physics degree from Edinburgh, I undertook a DPhil with the atom probe group at Oxford Materials. Following postdoctoral work on gas-surface interfaces at Heriot-Watt, I returned to Oxford in 2010 as a Departmental Lecturer, during which time I was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Industrial Secondment with Rolls-Royce plc. In my current role as Atom Probe Scientist, I lead operations of the Oxford Atom Probe group (atomprobe.materials.ox.ac.uk) and oversee outreach with industrial and academic partners.

Research
The Oxford Atom Probe group investigates a particularly diverse range of materials, using advanced instrumentation to characterise the atomic-scale chemistry and structure of materials used in applications such as nuclear fission/fusion, advanced engineering steels, aerospace alloys, semi-conductors, heterogeneous catalysts and even geological samples. I also have particular interest in developing new instrumentation for atom probes, and for combining insights with other complementary techniques. I work with industrial partners around the world, including Rolls-Royce plc and NNL in the UK.

Graduate teaching
I supervise a number of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, training them to use atom probe methods to assist with their research goals.
