Dr. Hammond began with an MSci at the University of Bristol, working on surfactant ionic liquids, before studying for an MRes in sustainable chemical technologies at the University of Bath. He was awarded his PhD in 2019, from the University of Bath’s Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies CDT in connection with STFC ISIS Neutron & Muon Source, for work on structure, solvation and applications of Deep Eutectic Solvents. He then worked on zwitterionic materials in the QUILL lab in Queen’s University Belfast. In 2019, he started a postdoctoral position in the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, continuing to study solvation processes in DES using MD simulation, and subsequently moved to the Physical Materials Chemistry group in Stockholm University at the beginning of 2021. He is currently working on Ionic Liquid structure using scattering techniques, and the application of ILs in nanomaterial synthesis.
