Dr Russell Binions completed his first degree (in Chemistry) from the college of St Hild and St Bede, the University of Durham in 2001. He subsequently completed a Ph.D. in 2005 under the supervision of Prof. Ivan P. Parkin and Prof. Claire J. Carmalt at University College London (UCL) with a thesis titled "Chemical Vapour Deposition of Main Group Metal Oxides and Phosphides".
He spent a year working in industry for the Norville Optical Group before returning to UCL in autumn 2005 to complete postdoctoral positions working on thermochromic thin films and zeolite modified gas sensors. He was awarded a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in 2008.
Dr Binions is currently a Senior Lecturer in Functional in the School of Engineering and Materials at Queen Mary, University of London and an Honorary Senior Research Associate at UCL. He is the author of over 100 peer reviewed journal papers, 6 book chapters and 1 book. His research interests encompass new chemical vapour deposition techniques, metal oxide semiconductor materials, gas sensors, photocatalysis, chromogenic materials, nanocomposite films and energy efficient building materials.
In his spare time Dr Binions enjoys American sports, playing guitar and painting.
