Katarina Cermelj is at Balliol College and joined the group in 2015 as a Part II student working on synthesising superhydrophobic layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanosheets. She has stayed on as a DPhil and is working on the synthesis of LDHs for photocatalytic applications. Away from the lab, she can be found in the kitchen baking up a storm, scribbling short stories and poems, or in University Parks stalking fluffy squirrels.
