Nathan Thompson, Sheffield

I’m Nathan, doing my Ph.D. at the University of Sheffield. Originally from Poole, it was in Hull that I completed my undergraduate degree in Chemistry, in 2016.

Now I’m in Sheffield (why leave Yorkshire?), I’m working on my project ‘Forensic Signatures of Nuclear Materials’. This is an exciting project, as I will have the chance to study the physical and chemical properties of some nuclear materials, as well as establishing their place in the nuclear industry. I will also get to work with plenty of chemistry; some things just never change.

Outside of the labs, I can be found fencing with the University, learning another language, or trying my hand at cooking.
