Naomi Brown

Postdoctoral Research Associate for Industry Collaboration

Naomi has a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Sheffield studying the efficacy of hard surface cleaning formulations in collaboration with SC Johnson as part of the CDT in polymers, colloids and soft matter. Her work focused on the optimisation of surfactant mixtures and analysis of how these solutions remove kitchen soils from surfaces.

After her PhD, Naomi worked at SilviBio, formulating novel hydrogel seed coatings and developing processes for scaling up production. Her next role was as a formulation scientist at Solasta Bio developing novel formulations for peptide-based insecticides and methods for analysing their mode of action.
