About:

Jeremy is a senior lecturer in the School of Applied Sciences at the University of Huddersfield. He manages the secondary school and sixth form outreach programme for Chemistry, Forensics, Pharmacy, Biological Sciences and Nutrition subject areas. The outreach programme includes subject specific workshops, science competitions, science fairs, E-mentoring, and large high profile such as the 2009 Darwin day and the 2008 world record for the longest model of DNA.

Jeremy is a lecturer in Chemistry and is course leader of the chemical and physical principles module for first year biology students (approximately 100 students). In addition, he runs final year research projects on acid mine drainage and on lead metal dissolution in tap water.

Jeremy's research areas include water chemistry, crystal growth and the design/evaluation of science outreach events. He is currently undertaking research for a major UK water utility and later this year will be supervising a placement student who will be working on 'science event' evaluation.
