Dr. Ceri Hammond is a Royal Society University Research Fellow, based primarily at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute. Prior to beginning his independent position, he spent periods at the chemical engineering department of ETH Z├╝rich (postdoctoral research fellow with Prof. Ive Hermans, 2011-2014), and the chemistry department at Stanford University (research fellow with Prof. Edward I. Solomon, 2014-2015). He leads the Catalysis Engineering group at the CCI, which currently consists of 1 PI, 2 PDRA, 7 PhD and 4 MSc/BSc students. The group sits on the chemistry/chemical engineering interface, and specializes in (1) the development of heterogeneous catalysts, primarily for liquid phase applications, (2) advanced mechanistic studies of catalytic systems through in situ spectroscopy and micro-kinetic analysis, and (3) the intensification of catalytic processes.
