About

My principal research interest is in surface chemistry, materials, polymers, and colloids and also in developing and understanding the correlations between the structures adopted by surfactants/polymeric surfactants at interfaces and the physical properties of these materials in solutions. Such materials have an extensive range of applications and are widely used from enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and personal care formulations through to drug delivery vehicles.

My current work in the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is focused mainly on material chemistry, functionalisation/synthesis of nanoparticles and microparticles.
