Professor - Climate-KIC
Richard is the Hofmann Professor of Chemistry at Imperial College London, now seconded into Climate-KIC. He has a long standing interest in creating and working in multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial environments. He moved into the climate innovation arena in 2007 when he became involved in organising Imperial College London’s approach to bio-renewable technologies. This led to his involvement in developing the education component of the bid to create Climate-KIC, using his previous experience as the Director of the Doctoral Training in Chemical Biology. He has been involved in three spin-out companies and managed this activity as head of Imperial College London’s chemistry department.
