Kevin obtained his BSc and PhD in Chemistry from Cardiff University before moving into a postdoctoral position at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow.

After a brief detour as an associate editor at Wiley-VCH, Kevin moved to the University of St Andrews to become the Project Manager for the “CRITICAT” Centre for Doctoral Training. During this time, he was heavily involved in the design of practical training courses for PhD students.

When the opportunity presented itself, Kevin transitioned into a role as the Health & Safety Manager for the School of Chemistry. He enjoys using his chemical background to (i) discuss planned experiments and (ii) design / deliver practical training courses for researchers.
