Detection and removal of bacteria via highly branched Polymers
Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sheffield working on a project funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) with two industrial partners (Smith and Nephew LTD and Microlab Devices LTD) [2013-2014]. Returned to the group December 2015 in MRC-DBT funded project.
Working on a project concerned with synthesis of hyperbranched polymers for the detection and removal of bacteria. Richard has a degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Bradford alongside plenty of industrial experience.
