Education & Research Activities

Calum was born in Brighton, before moving to Scotland at an early age. Enrolled at the University of Edinburgh in 2005 to study Chemical Physics, he graduated in mid-2010 with a Master's degree, specialising in “Atomic Force Microscopy of poymer microarrays: combined experimental and simulated studies”. During the degree, a year was spent working for Procter & Gamble in the field of liquid detergents, stimulating an interest in colloidal science that naturally led to the investigation of nanomaterials and 'squishy' physics.
