Jeremy Hamilton is a Research Associate in engineering entering from a background in chemistry. Jeremy is a graduate of the University of Ulster, obtaining a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Biochemical science in 2000 before applying chemical principles to a materials engineering Phd graduating in 2004. Staying with the University of Ulster he has obtained a number of years research experience working on both academic and commercial research projects.
Research interests revolve around the interplay of nanomaterials for new applications and improving systems by tailoring existing materials. The majority of his postdoctoral research has been aimed at Photocatalytic technologies. Including materials for solar removal of CO2 (COCON EU FP5: ERK6-1999-00015) water purification (PEBCAT EU FP5 :EVK1-CT-2000-00069, removal of persistant pollutants)(US Ireland : CBET-1033317, removal of cyano toxins) Self-cleaning medical surfaces (DOH, DECON RWG, photocatalytic removal of prions from surgical tools, OptomX PC60, photocatalytic coatings on polymer surfaces for medical devices). In addition to research into humanitarian projects Jeremy is an active consultant for local and international companies, most recently working on tailoring nanoparticles for drug delivery applications (SISAF LTD).
