Senior Lecturer

Profile

Richard began his academic life at Girton College Cambridge where he studied Engineering specialising in Mechanical Engineering. After a brief spell as an engineering consultant he continued his academic studies at Imperial College Chemical Engineering Department. Here he investigated the electrochemical recovery of platinum and palladium from spent catalyst as part of a CASE award project sponsored by Johnson Matthey. During his time at Imperial he picked up several awards including The Dudley Newitt Prize for experimental excellence and the BNFL section award at the 'SET for Britain' presentations at the House of Commons in 2004
