Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, University of Liverpool
Andy Cooper is a Nottingham graduate (1991), obtaining his Ph.D there in 1994 for the study of organometallic reaction mechanisms at low temperatures and high pressures with Prof. Martyn Poliakoff. After his Ph.D, he held a 1851 Fellowship and a Royal Society NATO Fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA, working with Prof. Joseph M. DeSimone on polymerisation reactions and phase transfer processes in supercritical CO2 (1995–1997). He then held a Ramsay Memorial Research Fellowship at the Melville Laboratory for Polymer Synthesis in Cambridge, working with Prof. Andrew B. Holmes on polymerisation in supercritical CO2 (1997–1999). In 1998, he was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship and joined Liverpool in January 1999, where he now holds a Personal Chair. His main research interests are polymeric materials, supercritical fluids, microporous materials, hydrogen storage, metal nanoparticles, organometallics, emulsion-templated materials, and high-throughput materials methodology.
