Personal profile


Neil is a physical chemist working at the interface between physics, chemistry and engineering. Neil completed his PhD thesis at the University of Cambridge on the applications of novel nuclear magnetic resonance techniques in surface science and heterogeneous catalysis, and is currently extending these methods to study gas and liquid dynamics within porous materials of importance to the energy and environment nexus.
