Dr Hall is an Associate Professor of Materials Engineering at the University of Nottingham and has been an active researcher in this field for 15 years. He is Director of the GeoEnergy Research Centre (GERC); a joint initiative between the British Geological Survey and the University of Nottingham supported by a £3m Strategic Development Fund. He currently holds the Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in 'CO2 storage and alternative hydrocarbons' sponsored by British Geological Survey. He is a Chartered Scientist (CSci), a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Member of the Institute of Physics (MInstP), and a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (FIMMM), who in 2007 awarded him the prestigious Silver Medal in recognition of "...outstanding contributions and promotion of the field of materials science, engineering and technology at an international level". His research activities focus on porous materials and he has expertise in micro/ macro-structural characterization techniques of porosity and transport properties including X-ray CT, electron microscopy, gas physisorption, Hg porosimetry, and thermophysical properties, as well as numerical modeling. His interests are in transport phenomena including heat and fluid transport, hygrothermal behavior, physisorption, capillarity, permeability, evaporative drying, ion diffusion, and carbonation. His work focusses on cement and concrete, soils, rocks, clays, and zeolites.

He is Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in 'Rock-Fluid Interactions in CO2 Storage and Alternative Hydrocarbons' at the British Geological Survey
