Visitors from Imperial College

After a week of conferences we are now relaxing at Noordhoek, south of Cape Town. Jon's girlfriend, Dr. Kathryn Hadler, arrived at the Vineyard on Friday evening. She has been working at the Mototolo Platinum Mine in Mpumulanga with other members of the Imperial College team, Dr. Chris Smith and Barry Shean, on air recovery test work.

Other Imperial College staff, Dr. Katie Cole, and Saman Ilankoona have been working in Somerset West, using the Positron Emission Particle Tracking facility at the iThemba Laboratories. Katie is a post-doc, Saman a PhD student with MEI consultant Stephen Neethling, and Barry is Prof. Jan Cilliers' PhD student. They all joined us, and Dean Eastbury, publishing manager at Elsevier, for a BBQ (braai) this afternoon.
