Dr Robert Weatherup
Fellow in Materials Science
I attended my local state grammar school (King Edward VI, Chelmsford) and then studied for both my undergraduate and doctoral degrees in engineering at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. I then spent four years as a research fellow at St. John’s College, Cambridge which included two years in the USA as a Marie Skłodowska Curie fellow at Lawrence Berkley national laboratory. Following this I then spent a brief period as a Diamond-Manchester research fellow within the school of chemistry at the University of Manchester but based at Diamond Light Source on the Harwell campus. In 2019, I took up my current position at Queen’s and the materials department in Oxford.
