Personal profile

My group


Steve graduated with a BA in Natural Sciences and an MSci in Chemistry at Selwyn College, Cambridge in 2002. In 2006 he completed a PhD in the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis, Cambridge working with Prof. Wilhelm Huck on thin functional polymer films grown by surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP). Following this he went to the Department of Chemistry at Sheffield University to conduct postdoctoral research in investigating surface-initiated polymerisation and the surface modification of polymer colloids working under Prof Steven Armes. From a lecturship in Polymer Science and Engineering in the Materials Department at Loughborough University, Steve joined the School of Materials in Manchester in 2014 as a Lecturer in Polymer Physics.
