Lecturer, Chemical Engineering/Programme Director, MSc Net Zero Engineering
Chemistry & Chemical Engineering
Dr. Nathan Skillen is currently a Lecturer in the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at QUB, where he is the Programme Director for the MSc in Net Zero Engineering. He has previously held a fellowship with the UKRI Supergen Bioenergy Hub, which focused on the development of photocatalytic technology for biomass reforming. He received his BSc (Hons) in Molecular Biology with Biosciences from Robert Gordon University before completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the same institute and in collaboration with the University of St. Andrews and California Institute of Technology. His post-doctoral work has focused on photocatalytic technology development for a range of applications centred around environmental remediation and energy production. He has published several research articles and book chapters and currently sits on the international editorial board of Biomass & Bioenergy (Elsevier). More important than all of that, however, he was part of a team of 10 researchers from across the UK that created the first graphic novel on Bioenergy.
