Professor Duncan Gregory is the WestCHEM chair of Inorganic Materials in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, UK. Duncan originally studied at the University of Southampton, UK, graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry with Physics and a PhD in Solid State Chemistry (under Professor Mark Weller), before becoming an EPSRC Advanced Fellow, Lecturer and Reader in Materials Chemistry at the University of Nottingham, UK, where he remained until 2006.
He is currently also a Visiting Professor at Kyushu University, Japan, and was Vice-President of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Materials Chemistry Division Council from 2009-2014. He is a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. He holds several other editorial posts, including the role of Editor-in-Chief of Inorganics and Associate Editor of Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy and Materials.
Duncan has published over 150 scientific papers, and his research interests focus on the synthesis and characterization of new solids, including sustainable energy materials (e.g. Li batteries, fuel storage, thermoelectrics), inorganic nanomaterials and the solid-state chemistry of nitrides and chalcogenides. His research also embraces the sustainable production of materials including the microwave synthesis and processing of solids. He was the winner of the RSC Sustainable Energy Award in 2009.
