Dr Adam Hill
Post-Doctoral Research Associate

Adam is from South Wales. He studied Chemistry (MChem) at the University of Warwick, undertaking a master's project in Computational Chemistry. He then worked as a PhD researcher on a collaborative project between the Centre for Nanoporous Materials and SINTEF in Norway, studying the crystal growth of zeolites. Adam then worked on a BASF funded project to develop experimental and computational methods for the study of crystallisation in zeolite catalysts. Adam is a Director, Founding Member and Chief Scientific Officer of the spinout CrystalGrower. Adam is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Crystal Chemistry and Particle Process Engineering (CCAPPE) Research Group at The University of Manchester working with Aurora Cruz Cabeza. Outside of work Adam enjoys music, and has played the guitar and drums for many years.
