Dr. Jeremy Titman studied for his Ph.D. from 1987 to 1990 with Dr James Keeler in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge where his research involved designing new methods for solution-state NMR spectroscopy. He spent three and a half years at the Max-Planck-Institut für Polymerforschung in Mainz, Germany working in the laboratory of Professor Hans W. Spiess, initially as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow and subsequently as a Staff Scientist. His research in Mainz focused on the development of magic angle spinning NMR experiments for the study of solid polymers. In 1994 he was appointed Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at the University of Nottingham and in 2002 he was promoted to Reader in Magnetic Resonance.
Design of new solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments, in particular based on ultrafast magic angle spinning. Applications of solid-state NMR to glasses, polymers, and catalysts. Development of dynamic nuclear polarization enhance solid-state NMR for studies of nanoscale porous and particulate materials, surfaces, catalysts and low natural abundance species.
