Diploma in Microscopy

Dip. Microscopy from the RMS, project titled "A Combined Microscopic Study of the Interactions of Nanoparticles with Cells". Awarded September 2016.

Materials Research Institute, Sheffield Hallam University, 1998


Ph.D. project investigating the mechanisms of adhesion in glass / PVC / organosilane laminates. This was achieved by using infrared, Raman microscopic and thermal measurements to assess the interdiffusion of the PVC and organosilane materials, and the reactions that occur in the bulk polymer and at the interfaces.

Institute of Polymer Technology and Materials Engineering, Loughborough University of Technology, 1995

MSc. in Polymer Technology

Including optional module in polymer science. The research project was to devise, develop and assess a novel nylon to rubber adhesion system, using no adhesive interlayer. The work was carried out in collaboration with Avon - Clevite limited.

Chemistry Department, University of York, 1994

BSc. Honours in Chemistry ( Class II/ii )

A modular course in which specialised options were materials science, computers in chemistry, catalysis, energy studies, advanced physical chemistry, and fast reactions. The final year research project involved the investigation of a novel thermoreversible gel.
