Dr David B Anthony is a Advanced Technical Project Coordinator in the Department of Chemistry.
His research focuses on hierarchical composites, developing novel nanoscale reinforcers with carbon fibres specialising in the synthesis of carbon nanoforms including carbon nanotubes and carbon aerogels. David's research is inherently multidisciplinary, working between Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Aeronautics within Nanostructured Hierarchical Assemblies and Composites (NanoHAC), Polymers and Composites Engineering (PaCE, now relocated to the University of Vienna), and The Composite Centre and the Structural Power Composites Groups, respectively.
He is currently working in the Next Generation Fibre-Reinforced Composites: a Full Scale Redesign for Compression (NextCOMP) programme a collaboration between Imperial College London and the University of Bristol, developing materials which can improve the absolute performance of composites in compression ((Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) EP/T011653/1).
David has a keen interest in Formula 1 managing to visit Monza in 2013 for the last season with the now fondly missed sounds of the V8 engines.
