Camille Blayo


Camille joined the group in September 2014 after completing an MSc. in Materials Chemistry at the University of Montpellier II (France). His interests, apart from chemistry, are hiking, playing football and bothering Steve.

Current Research

Camille’s research focuses on the design and characterisation of novel  photoactive surfactants and their use in phase transfer catalysis. He uses small angle scattering techniques (SAXS, SANS) to investigate their self-assembly in solution.
