The Iontronics: from fundamentals to ion-controlled devices Faraday Discussion took place in Edinburgh, UK from 21–23 June 2023. Nanoscale Horizons, Nanoscale, Nanoscale Advances, and Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) were delighted to support prizes at this event and we would like to congratulate our winners!
Nanoscale Horizons, Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances Poster Prize
Anna Drummond Young (University of Oxford, UK)
Anna Drummond Young is a DPhil student in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, UK, under the supervision of Prof. Alice Thorneywork. She received her M. Sci. in the Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2022. Her current research focuses on noise in the ionic current of nanopores, specifically in relation to the adsorption of polymers, such as PEG, inside the pore.

Dominik Duleba (University College Dublin, Ireland)
Dominik Duleba completed his undergraduate degree in chemistry (with a focus on analytical chemistry and nanotechnology) at Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Afterwards, he completed his Master’s at University College Dublin, Ireland, under the supervision Prof. Robert Johnson where he is staying to complete his PhD. His major research interests currently lie in understanding the fundamental processes occurring in confined spaces, continuum modelling of nanoconfined devices with the Finite Element Method, and the incorporation of machine learning approaches with iontronic devices. Previously, he has also worked with the modelling of air pollution patterns, with phosphorescent halogen-bonded frameworks, and with the conduction mechanisms of supercapacitor electrolyte gels.
