Silo Meoto earns her PhD!


She will use ARCHER supercomputer for 6 months to study behavior of biomolecules confined in ordered amorphous silica through all-atom molecular dynamic simulations with explicit water and counter-ions.The simulations will provide a better understanding of the interplay between the adsorbed proteins and mesoporous materials which is necessary to improve drug delivery systems by improving stability and controlled release of the active drug at the site of interest.

Dr Silo Meoto passed her viva on 18 April! She defended her thesis: "Controlled synthesis and characterisation of heirarchically structured  inorganic materials for membrane applications," and earned her PhD in Chemical Engineering from UCL! Congratulations Silo, we are all proud of you!
