Melanie Britton


Melanie Britton

University of Birmingham, UK

Melanie Britton obtained a BSc in Chemistry from London University (RHC) in 1992 and a PhD from the University of Surrey in 1995, under the supervision of Les Sutcliffe and Duncan Gillies. She was a postdoctoral research fellow with Paul Callaghan at Massey University in New Zealand (1996 – 1998) and Ken Packer at Nottingham University (1998 – 2000).

She received an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 2000, where she worked at the Magnetic Resonance Research Centre in Cambridge University. In 2004, she became a Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at Birmingham University and then Senior Lecturer in 2011. For the last 15 years, she has been specialising in the development of magnetic resonance techniques to probe chemical processes. She is particularly interested in the visualisation of chemical systems using magnetic resonance imaging, pulsed gradient spin echo measurements, velocity imaging, magnetic resonance relaxation, chemistry in flow and probing the chemistry, composition and dynamics of micelles, vesicles and microemulsions.
