Congratulations to CSCT academics Professor Chuck, Professor Jones, Dr Hintermair and Dr Buchard

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) is thrilled to announce that associated academics Chris Chuck, Matthew Jones, Ulrich Hintermair and Antoine Buchard have recently been promoted in recognition of significant contributions to their research fields and to the University of Bath.

Chris Chuck, previously a Whorrod Fellow, and Matthew Jones, who is a CSCT Theme Leader in Renewable Feedstocks and Biotechnology, have both been promoted to Professor.

Following his promotion, Chris Chuck, Professor of Bioprocess Engineering, said: “I started my career in Chemical Engineering in 2011 as a CSCT Whorrod Fellow. Without all the support, wonderful engaged students and forward-looking industrial partners from the CSCT, I wouldn’t have got to where I am today.”

Matthew Jones, recently appointed Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, said: “Needless to say, I am delighted to have been offered this promotion. The supportive research environment at the CSCT and the University of Bath has been crucial to my research successes; and has made the process not only rewarding, but also really fun!”

Dr Antoine Buchard and Dr Ulrich Hintermair, who also received CSCT Whorrod Research Fellowships at the beginning of their careers, have both been promoted to Reader in Chemistry.

“Being promoted Reader is an individual recognition of a collective achievement. Research at the CSCT is a team effort, and my ideas would be nothing without those of my collaborators, colleagues and students across the University. I am especially grateful to Roger and Sue Whorrod for supporting me from the very beginning at Bath through a Whorrod Research Fellowship.”  – Dr Antoine Buchard

“I am very happy and honoured to have been promoted to Reader – an achievement kick-started by the Whorrod Research Fellowship and enabled by the strong support from the CSCT. This promotion is also a recognition of the hard work of all my students and collaborators, and I’m looking forward to growing our research programme at the CSCT further in the years to come.” –  Dr Ulrich Hintermair

Professor Matthew Davidson, CSCT Director, said: ” Our remarkable pool of talented people is what makes the Centre tick, so it is with real pride that I warmly congratulate four close colleagues, all of whom I have watched develop from the start of their careers.”
