Chair of Interfacial Science & Engineering and Director of Discipline
The University of Edinburgh

Glen was recently appointed as Professor of Interfacial Science & Engineering and Director of Chemical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh and is a member of the Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids. He was previously Pro Vice Chancellor (REF) and Executive Dean of Engineering & Environment at Northumbria University. His research is on how liquids interact with solid surfaces – whether it be at the small scale of microfluidics or the large scale of flow across surfaces. This encompasses droplet-surface interactions and nature-inspired surface engineering. His research has been extensively supported by the UK Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and he has published over 200 refereed journal papers. Glen is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), the Institute of Physics (IoP), the Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) and is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (SMIEEE).
