Senior Lecturer in Science

Staff Profile

Dr. Amiya Chaudhry

Room: C13g


+44 (0) 1978 293421


Dr Amiya Chaudhry received her BSc (Hons) (1998) in Environmental Science and a PhD (2004) in Polymer Chemistry from the University of Sussex. Her PhD, funded by the Atomic Weapons Establishment UK was based on the characterisation and degradation of a typical room temperature vulcanized (RTV) filled foamed poly(dimethyl)siloxane rubber.

Her research interests lie in the broad area of polymer degradation and biopolymers which supports the Environmental Science discipline of the curriculum.

In 2004 she was appointed as an associate lecturer at the Open University on a number of technology and science courses. In 2005 she joined the Materials Science Research Centre at Glyndwr University as a knowledge transfer associate on a two-year research project funded by the Department of Trade and Industry and Almetron Ltd.

In 2007 she took a permanent academic position teaching on the BSc Environmental Science and Forensic Science degree programmes.
