Research Interests

Research interests include fundamental aspects of the kinetics of free-radical and emulsion polymerisation, modelling of the kinetics of free-radical polymerisation, termination kinetics, use of living free-radical polymerisation to synthesise polymers, particle formation in emulsion polymerisation, synthesis and morphology of emulsion polymers, experimental investigations into the kinetics of emulsion polymerization, and critically evaluated rate parameters in free-radical polymerization.
