David Crosby

Impact Acceleration Associate

David received his PhD in Physics from the University of Edinburgh, his thesis was about understanding the rheological and surface active behaviour of a commercial microgel. This project was done in collaboration with GSK as part of the SOFI (Soft Matter and Functional Interfaces) CDT. The work focussed on understanding how a commercial microgel, used by GSK, acted to both thicken and stabilise skin creams.

After his PhD, David worked at Curia Glasgow, formulating new pharmaceutical products for external clients. His next role was a Colloid and Interface Scientist at Unilever, where he tested novel new sustainably sourced materials (polymers and surfactants) for use in laundry products.
