Dr. David James Martin studied Physics at the University of Liverpool (MPhys), and then completed a PhD in Chemical Engineering at University College London (UCL) under the tutelage of Dr. Junwang Tang. His thesis focused on the oxidation, reduction, and overall splitting of water using visible light photocatalysts. David is currently a UCL Chemistry research associate working with Dr. Andrew Beale. David's present research focuses on X-ray diffraction and scattering techniques for in situ characterisation of heterogeneous catalysts. David has a comprehensive and complementary background in photocatalysis for water splitting and heterogeneous catalysis with expertise focused on in situ/operando methods for materials characterisation.
