Jonathan Hare - Physicist

Jonathan studied Physics at Surrey University. While working on his PhD in Chemical Physics at Sussex University he was very lucky to be involved in some of the first pioneering work on Buckminsterfullerene (C60) — work which led from astronomy via chemistry into a new area of materials science. He currently runs The Creative Science Centre at the University of Sussex. He also performs consulting work for Schlumberger, an oilfield services company. In 2000 he was awarded a fellowship through the U.K.'s National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts, which he uses to explore creative ideas.

This is Jonathan's fourth Rough Science project.
