Personal profile

Personal Statement

Joining CMAC in 2016, Alan obtained a Masters degree in Chemistry from the University of Glasgow and completed his PhD at the University of Bath in 2013 under Professor Chick Wilson, researching the utilisation of co-crystallisation and hosting methodologies to stabilise reactive materials in the solid state with a primary focus on using predictable hydrogen bonding motifs, whilst taking advantage of  X-ray powder diffraction extensively as a screening tool and single crystal X-ray diffraction to characterise new materials produced. Alan also has over two years of experience in the analysis of the performance of scale inhibiting chemicals for the oilfield industry, working for an independent testing laboratory, with a particular focus on barite and carbonate scales. Alan’s primary responsibility is for the running of the CMAC’s world leading X-Ray diffraction facilities at Strathclyde University Technology and Innovation Centre.
