Research interests

Research interests include: analytical radiochemistry, mass spectrometric analysis of radionuclides, dispersion of radionuclides / heavy metals in the marine / coastal environment, application of radiotracers in environmental process studies, nuclear forensics and nuclear waste characterisation and remediation. His research has included the development of novel extractants / adsorbents, novel techniques for quantification of difficult-to-measure radionuclides, development of nuclear waste characterisation techniques, automation and development of in-situ / on-line radionuclide sensors, radiologically-contaminated land remediation, permeable reactive barriers for groundwater clean-up and development of contaminated land assessment strategies.

Phil is a Chartered Chemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
