Professor Carl Redshaw

Professor of Inorganic Materials Chemistry and REF Lead for Chemistry

Faculty and Department

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences

Summary

Professor Redshaw was a Welch Fellow at the University of Texas, Austin, and a postdoctoral fellow with the late Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson at Imperial College, and at the IRC Durham. He was awarded a Leverhulme Fellowship and moved to UEA as a lecturer (1999), Senior Lecturer (2007) and Reader (2009), before being appointed Professor of Inorganic Materials at Hull in 2012. He has many links with the Far East, including visiting professorships at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC), the Institute of Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing (ICCAS), Sichuan Normal University and, currently, Northwest University in Xi'an.
