Institute of Advanced Study
Each Michelmas term, Cuth’s hosts a visiting Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS), who lives in the college and engages both formally and informally in our research activities.
2019/20 IAS Fellow
Dr Elshan (El) Abdullayev is a researcher at the French-Azerbaijani University in Baku, Azerbaijan. He researches clay minerals, their chemical composition and the geochemistry of the sediments from the lacustrine and marine basin. Dr Abdullayev will take part in the IAS sponsored project “Antibacterial Clay Therapy” led by Dr Gary Sharples (Biosciences) and Dr Kimberley Jamie (Sociology), along with IAS Fellows Professor Hailiang Dong (University of Florida), and Professor Kevin Rosso (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory). One aspect of the project focusses on investigating clay minerals from Baku, Azerbaijan, and to investigate the mineralogical and chemical composition of the clay minerals to specifically understand under what conditions the clay minerals form, and its antibacterial efficacy assessed against representative bacterial species.
Public Lecture: 'Origin of clay minerals and their perspectives'
