The Britovsek research group  was set up in 2001 and has been growing slowly but steadily over the years. The Britovsek group are dedicated and spritely folk. We are aware that this makes us sound like leprechauns, but as we don't have any lucky charms, this comparison is unwarranted...

      CURRENT POST DOCS  

Dr. ATANAS TOMOV Atanas

Atanas completed his undergraduate studies at the Higher Institute of Chemical Technology in Bulgaria. His PhD on the synthesis of nickel-based oligomerization and polymerization catalysts was carried out at Burgas University of Technology (1994) under the supervision of Professor K. Kurtev. He then worked for two years in Assen Zlatarov University, Bulgaria as a lecturer before spending one year as post-doc (1996-1997) at ENSCM, Montpellier in the group of Professor F. Fajula, working on heterogeneous chromium based catalysts. He then moved to the Ecole Supérieure de Chimie Physique Electronique de Lyon to work in the group of Professor R. Spitz working olefin polymerization / copolymerization catalysts. After working for a number of years on BP, Innovene and Ineos sponsored research projects in Professor Vernon C. Gibson's group at Imperial College, Atanas joined Dr Britovsek’s group in January, 2009. He is currently researching new olefin polymerization catalysts. His work is sponsored by Ineos.
