Iain Oswald graduated with a MChem with Industrial Experience from University of Edinburgh. He followed this with a PhD in the same institution under the supervision of Professor Simon Parsons looking at hydrogen bonding in molecular crystals, co-crystals under a range of temperatures and pressures. He moved to work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility on the High Pressure Beamline, ID27 in 2004. His second postdoctoral position took him back to the University of Edinburgh to work with Professor Colin Pulham investigating energetic and pharmaceutical materials under high pressure conditions. In 2009, he was appointed lecturer at the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences before progressing in 2014 to be a senior lecturer. He has recently been awarded an EPSRC Early Career Engineering Fellowship investigating ‘Pressure-induced nucleation for the continuous manufacture of supramolecular assemblies’.
