Steve has been re-elected to the Council of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance (ISMAR) for the period 2018-21.
Sabu has come to the end of his 3-year Leverhulme Trust postdoc position working on solid-state NMR of immobilised enzymes and has left Lancaster. He will be greatly missed.
Steve's paper "A High-Resolution Natural Abundance 33S MAS NMR Study of the Cementitious Mineral Ettringite" has been published in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. [Get Reprint].
Smita and Steve's paper "Spin-Locking of Half-Integer Quadrupolar Nuclei in NMR of Solids: The Far Off-Resonance Case" has finally been published in Solid State Nucl. Magn. Reson. [Get Reprint].
Steve attended the 10th Postgraduate Meeting of the RSC NMR Discussion Group held at the University of Strathclyde (22 June 2017).
Dr Valerie Seymour has joined the solid-state NMR research team in Lancaster. Valerie will work mainly with Professor Mark Smith but will also collaborate with Dr John Griffin and Steve.
Funding for the UK 850 MHz Solid-State NMR Facility has been confirmed until January 2020 after receiving an excellent (6/6) evaluation from EPSRC.
Somewhat implausibly, Steve has been awarded "Top Reviewer in 2016" status by the Journal of Magnetic Resonance [See Certificate].
