As the world moves more to renewable energy resources there is a growing challenge to balancing YOUR energy requirements and the availability of renewable sources. Charlie advocates and researches the use of Hydrogen as the perfect Universal Energy Carrier to store, transport and utilise intermittent renewable energy supplies. Charlie is now a Senior Lecturer at the new Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University with a MSci in Chemistry from Nottingham and a PhD in nanomaterials from Glasgow University. His previous posts at UCL Chemistry include a prestigious Ramsay Fellowship and a post-doc in photocatalytic self-cleaning materials and photocatalysts working with Prof. Ivan Parkin. In his spare time, Charlie runs a small company that works with hydrogen and he plays canoe polo, a game likened to 5-a-side Rugby but in boats.
Charlie is also an associate editor for RSC Advances and recognised for teaching as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
