Come to WA Chemaraderie September 2022
5.30pm Tuesday 4 October 2022
Curtin University, Exhibition Space, Building 500.
The September Chemaraderie has moved from its usual date.
Speaker: Dr Neil Robinson
Affiliation: The University of Western Australia
Title: Magnetic Resonance of Porous Engineering Systems
Dr Neil Robinson is a physical chemist and chemical engineering who holds a prestigious Forrest Fellowship within the Fluid Science and Resources Research Group (www.fsr.ecm.uwa.edu.au) at The University of Western Australia. His research lies in the development and characterisation of next-generation materials for energy, environmental and societal applications, with a strong focus on understanding gas and liquid dynamics within functional porous media. Neil achieved a First Class MChem Chemistry degree from Cardiff University (Cardiff, UK) in 2014, following which he undertook a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge. His doctoral research was undertaken at Cambridge’s Magnetic Resonance Research Centre and focused on the applications of novel magnetic resonance methods in surface science and heterogeneous catalysis. As a Research Associate at The University of Western Australia (2019 – 2022) Neil then worked with Prof Mike Johns to extend these approaches across diverse fluid-saturated porous systems. His Fellowship aims to apply these methods to the study and development of porous materials necessary for the efficient and large-scale transportation of hydrogen.
