Research Interests

Dr Colin Crick received his PhD from University College London (UCL), Department of Chemistry, in 2011, where his research was specialised in novel water repellent materials. This has since developed into a passion for materials science, and the drive toward developing ever better functional materials. After undertaking positions at UCL, Cornell University, and Imperial College London, funded respectively by the EPSRC Doctoral Prize, Fulbright Scholarship, and Ramsay Memorial Trust, he took up his position at the University of Liverpool in 2016.

His present research focus not only includes water repellent materials, but also incorporates a wide array of materials based fields, including biosensors and nanocomposites, with a focus on projects that can readily provide real-world impact.
