Dr Ceri Hammond is a Royal Society University Research Fellow, based at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London (ICL). He studied for his undergraduate degree at the School of Chemistry at Cardiff University, and did doctoral research at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute under Professor Graham J Hutchings FRS. He subsequently spent periods at the Department of Chemical and Bio-Engineering at ETH Zürich (2011–2014, with Professor Ive Hermans), and later at the Department of Chemistry, Stanford University (2014–2015, with Professor Edward I Solomon). Ceri then established his independent lab in 2015 following the award of a Royal Society University Research Fellowship. He moved to Imperial College London in December 2019, after spending the first years of his URF at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute.
Ceri leads a multidisciplinary team at ICL that currently consists of two PDRAs, six PhDs and several UG students. His lab has a broad range of interests at the interface of chemistry and chemical engineering, and specialises in several aspects of catalysis and sustainable chemical technology.
