Daniel Keddie

Senior Research Officer in Polymer Synthesis, Faculty of Science



Dr Daniel J. Keddie is Senior Research Officer in Polymer Synthesis in the School of Chemistry at the University of Nottingham, UK. After completing both his BAppSc (hons) (2003) and PhD (2008) in synthetic organic/ radical chemistry at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia, he undertook postdoctoral research at the same institution in the area of silicone polymer synthesis.

In 2009, he moved to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia to undertake an OCE postdoctoral fellowship working with Dr Graeme Moad, co-inventor of the RAFT process. He remained at CSIRO until taking up a position as Lecturer of Organic Chemistry at the University of New England (UNE) in Armidale, Australia in late 2012, relinquishing this role in early 2015.

He subsequently relocated to the UK and following a short appointment undertaking commercial research at the University of Warwick, he moved to the University of Wolverhampton as Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry where he remained from mid-2015 until late-2022.

Dr Keddie commenced his current role at Nottingham, working alongside Prof. Steve Howdle in November 2022. His research interests include the development of new methods in polymer synthesis, the characterization and application of novel polymeric materials and the design and synthesis of functional small molecules.

Since 2020 Dr Keddie has been a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
