Paul McKeown

Paul graduated from the University of Liverpool with an MChem in 2012. His third year project was based on the synthesis and use of novel silica-polymer composites which he carried on into the summer. For the forth year, he worked on heterogeneous catalysts for biomass production, considering platinum-ruthenium nanoparticles for glycerol reformation. Other interests include music and playing guitar.
