Biography

Richard is Director of the Analytical Centre at the University of Bradford; a specialist facility managing the major analytical equipment for the University. He joined Bradford in 2005 to manage commercial projects run through the Centre and continues to collaborate widely with industrial partners delivering continuously on multiple projects to the Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical, Healthcare and Specialty Chemical Sectors as Principle Investigator. He has delivered over £2.0m commercial research income since joining the University. Prior to this, Richard started his career at Zeneca (subsequently AstraZeneca and Syngenta) where he spent 8 years in characterisation functions at their HMC and Jealott’s Hill manufacturing and R&D sites as a Senior Analytical Chemist. He has extensive expertise in a broad range of analytical techniques including NMR, vibrational spectroscopy (Raman, FTIR), separation science (HPLC, GC, CE), mass spectrometry, thermal analysis (DSC, TGA, DMA), and electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), with a particular research interest in hyphenated techniques including DSC-Raman/FTIR/XRD (the focus of a recently co-authored book chapter for the RSC text “Principles of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry”).
