Professor Robin Grimes is the Chief Scientific Advisor to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and Professor of Materials Physics at the Deparment of Materials at Imperial College London. His fields of interest include the application and development of computer simulation techniques to predict structural and dynamic properties of inorganic materials. Topics of particular interest include radiation damage, nuclear fuels and waste form behaviour and performance, ionic conductivity and defect processes for fuel cell materials, surface structural processes and interfaces between glass and ceramic. SNRSI was very honoured to have him conduct two special lectures on the topics of nuclear fuels and materials, and emergency preparedness and response.
