Fin presented his masters project presentation on Inducing Alignment of Micellar Structures in Transient Hydrogel Systems. He has now handed in this thesis and completed the viva meaning he has now finished his masters project. Fin has been in the lab for the last 6 months working with Simona and we all wish him the best with the future. Maybe we’ll see him back at some point.
