Career Summary

Biography

Dr Neville carried out her BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry at the University of Surrey UK. She was awarded her PhD from the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering, University of Leeds, UK, during which she used a range of materials engineering and surface science techniques in her research on interactions of antimicrobial peptides with model cell membranes. Her first postdoctoral position was at the Institute for Membrane and Systems  Biology, University of Leeds, UK, where she was sponsored by European Commission (EC) funding under the Nanotechnology theme of the Framework 6 program, working on silica based enzyme sensor systems. She joined the University of Newcastle in 2009.

The University of Newcastle
Environmental science is the foundation of the increased environmental understanding today and chemistry plays a major role in this. The properties and reactions of substances in the environment can profoundly influence the world we live in. These substances may be natural or man-made, and there is increasing interest in the interface between man-made systems and the natural environment. Understanding of the chemical basis of environmental science is developed in this course via studies in the areas of water, earth and atmosphere.
