FEnEx CRC Strategic Research Fellow
Neil is a Research Fellow in the UWA Fluid Science and Resources Research Group where he holds a Forrest Research Foundation Fellowship. Prior to taking up this position, Neil completed an MChem (Chemistry) degree at Cardiff University and a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge, followed by a Research Associate position at UWA. 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. He currently leads and contributes to a variety of projects of relevance to large-scale hydrogen transport, including the design of materials to enable energy-efficient liquefaction, and the study of catalytic processes necessary for the use of liquid organic hydrogen carriers. Neil was a finalist in the 2021 IChemE Global Awards and represented Australia at the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting under an Australia Academy of Science/Science and Industry Endowment Fund Fellowship.
