Dr Huw Pullin
I am a multi-discipilinary NERC post-doctoral researcher at the University of Cardiff researching methods to mitgate climate change by the accelerated carbonation of natural and anthropogenic minerals. I have previosuly worked on a NERC funded project investigating the detection and transformation of engineered nanoparticles in the environment, My PhD investigated the fate and reactivity of zero-valent iron nanoparticles when used for groundwater contaminant remediation.
- 2016 - 2017: NERC Research Associate – The multimodal imaging of engineered nanoparticles in the environment, Bristol University
- 2010 - 2012: Research Assistant – Novel mining techniques (Project Seren), School of Engineering, Cardiff University
I am an earth/material scientist with fifteen years of experience in the environmental sector both in industry and academia. My primary research is related to the impact and negation of industrial activities on natural receptors. I’m practiced in many material science characterisation techniques (SEM-EDS, TEM, XRD, XPS, Raman, BET) and geochemical analysis techniques (ICP-MS, ICP-OES, IC, GC, UV/Vis).
I am currently researching carbonate formation in natural and anthropogenic minerals (legacy iron and steel wastes) as a method of carbon sequestration.
