BIOGRAPHY

Duncan is a Cumbrian who graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1981 and remained there for his PhD under the supervision of David Cole-Hamilton. His thesis concerned phosphine complexes of PtII and RhI as potential photocatalysts for the decomposition of water. In 1984, he took up a Temporary Lectureship in Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Sheffield and in 1986 was awarded a Royal Society Warren Research Fellowship, which he held there until 1991. He was then appointed Lecturer in Chemistry and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 1994, in which year he became co-director of the Sheffield Centre for Molecular Materials. In 1995, he was appointed Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Exeter. Following Exeter's disastrous closure of Chemistry in 2005, Duncan took up his present position as Professor of Materials Chemistry in York.

He served as President of the Royal Society of Chemistry Materials Division from 2006-2009, was Chair of the British Liquid Crystal Society from 2009-2011 and was an elected member of RSC Council (2011-15) and Chair of its Audit Committee (2012-15). He is currently Chair of the Awards Working Group, Chair of the Trustees of the Pension Scheme and a Member of the Disciplinary Committee.

His work has been recognised by various awards including British Liquid Crystal Society's first Young Scientist prize (1990) and the RSC's Peter Day Award (2014), Tilden Prize (2010), Corday-Morgan Medal and Prize (1996) and Sir Edward Frankland Fellowship (1994/95). He has held visiting positions in Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Japan, Italy and Taiwan.
