Dr Gareth Whiting

Gareth Whiting (Wales, 1987) received his PhD from the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) in 2012, in the group of Prof. Graham Hutchings. After spending one year as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Research on Catalysis and Environment in Lyon (IRCELYON), France, he moved to the Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis (ICC) group at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. After three further years of postdoctoral research working with Prof. Bert Weckhuysen, he obtained a personal NWO (Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) ‘Veni’ grant, and is currently an Assistant Professor (since 2016) at the same group.

His research focuses on the use of in situ/operando micro-spectroscopy to understand structure-function relationships of heterogeneous catalyst materials, at multiple length and time scales.
