Professor Barry Sharp
Barry Sharp studies chemistry and physics as an undergraduate which was followed by a PhD at Imperial College. After graduating he joined the staff as a Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry and after 3 years moved to the Macaulay Institute in Aberdeen, eventually becoming head of its Analytical Division. He joined the Chemistry Department at Loughborough University in 1990. His research is focussed on the development of elemental mass spectrometry using the inductively coupled plasma source and laser sampling methods for mass spectrometry. The work covers a range of topics from fundamental studies on mass spectrometry to the development of specific applications, mostly in the bio-medical and nuclear sciences. He has published over 100 papers and was a founder member of JAAS Editorial Board, with the late John Ottaway, and a former Editorial Board Chair in which capacity he served for 8 years.
