Dr Matthew Potter

Matt was awarded a PhD from the University of Southampton in designing bifunctional heterogeneous catalysts in 2014. Since then, he has taken on numerous post-doctoral projects including 2015-2016 at Georgia Institute of Technology (USA) where he investigating amine-based sorbents for CO2 capture, 2016-2018 at the University of Southampton (UK) focussing on creating chemical reactors from photonic devices, and 2018-2022 also at Southampton, where he worked on understanding active site design for nanocatalysts, as part of the TotalEnergies Consortium on nanocatalysts. Matt is currently working on an ERC project, exploring the mechanism of CO2 hydrogenation catalysts using in situ and operando synchrotron techniques.
