DPhil student Samuel Coles came to visit

In Febuary and March last year I visited Tartu to work with the double layer group on a short term scientific mission funded by COST action MP1306. The aim of my visit was to develop a molecular dynamics setup for performing simulations of boundary film shear. During this mission I worked closely with Dr Vladislav Ivaništšev on developing simulation setups and developing a scripting framework. This works is a three way collaboration between the group in Tartu, The group of my supervisor Prof. Susan Perkin and Prof. Maxim Federov at the University of Strathclyde.

During the STSM I also got to explore both Tartu and Estonia more widly. The beauty and historical interest of the area was a welcome distraction from work, during an otherwise highly productive STSM.
