Anthony received his PhD from Southampton University in 1991 and carried out postdoctoral research at Cambridge University. He subsequently moved to Imperial College London where he has held the post of Professor of Physical Chemistry since 2009. Anthony has over fifteen years of experience in the development of new catalysts and characterisation techniques for low temperature fuel cells. He has published more than seventy peer reviewed papers on different aspects of electrochemical energy systems. His work on catalysts for fuel cells includes: novel methods for rapidly screening catalysts under realistic fuel cell operating conditions; the study of individual catalyst particles and the modification of surface composition to probe the fundamentals of electrocatalysis. He has also published extensively on kinetic models of electrochemical processes occurring within fuel cell systems and developed key approaches to studying current and reactant distribution within operating fuel cells.
