Biography

Gordon Morris is a Professor of Carbohydrate Chemist in the Department of Chemical Sciences. He is an analytical and biopolymer chemist and has active research interests in the areas of polysaccharide structure-function, mucoadhesion and peptide chemistry.

He studied for his first degree and MSc in chemistry at the University of Aberdeen before moving to the University of Nottingham in the group of Prof. Steve Harding to conduct BBSRC Industrial Case PhD with Unilever Research (Dr. Tim Foster) on “Hydrodynamic investigation of polysaccharides and their interactions with casein”. After leaving Nottingham he completed a postdoctoral position at Industrial Research Limited (IRL) in Lower Hutt, New Zealand where he worked on the physical and chemical characterisation of chemically and enzymatically modified polysaccharides. He continued this work with in a further postdoctoral position with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in Nantes. This then took him back to Nottingham where he worked for 4.5 years as a Research and Teaching Fellow at the School of Biosciences where his research interests included: stability of chitosan nanoparticles; stability of pectin solutions and gels and polysaccharide/ polysaccharide interactions. He joined the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in January 2011 and was made a professor in August 2017.
