Dave studied applied science to first degree level at Sheffield Hallam University before being employed by the University of Nottingham and studying the effect of polymer coatings on metals as part of a M Phil degree. He joined ICI in 1988 as a polymer melt rheologist and is now technique leader.
Dave's main interests are the processing behaviours of polymeric materials from melts to pastes and adhesives. He is also resource manager for the mechanical and tribological testing group at Wilton and is an active member of the IUPAC working party on the structure and properties of commercial polymers. He has published in the scientific literature as well as presenting papers at International Rheology conferences.
