Simon joined the CDT in 2009. He graduated from the University of Sheffield earlier the same year with a MEng in Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. In his final year masters project he was researching the effect on the adaptation of crystal habit (morphology) of amino acid systems by addition of dopant impurities. Prior to this he worked on designing a novel way to capture and process CO2 from a Combined Heat and Power plant to produce a fuel feedstock.
