Dr. Joe Byrne says farewell to TG Group

Gunnlaugson group stalwart Dr. Joseph Byrne leaves the TG Group for new pastures in Bern, Switzerland to take up a post-doctoral position with Prof. Martin Albrecht. Joe leaves after a very successful five and a half years in the Trinity College Supramolecular and Medicinal Chemistry group.

In that time, Joe completed his PhD (“Novel btp [2,6-bis(1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)pyridine] systems: a versatile motif for the formation of supramolecular self-assembly structures”) from which he published in many high impact journals. Following on from his success he continued as a Post-Doctoral Researcher for a year and a half, continuing his chemical research, opening up new collaborations in Hong Kong and volunteering in various outreach programmes, showcasing chemistry at Trinity with students from around the country.

The Gunnlaugsson Group would like to express their thanks to Dr. Joseph Byrne for his generosity of time and his willingness to share his expertise with older and newer members of the group alike. We wish Joe all the best for the future!
