Michael J. Pilling

Michael J. Pilling received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1967. He first worked in Cambridge and Oxford Universities and was appointed Professor of Physical Chemistry at Leeds in 1989. Professor Pilling has worked extensively in chemical kinetics for over 30 years, especially on laboratory measurements using laser flash photolysis. Professor Pilling’s research interests center on fundamental chemical kinetics and applications in atmospheric chemistry and combustion. Professor Pilling was the Chairman of the UK Air Quality Expert Group and the Director of the Distributed Institute for Atmospheric Composition (DIAC) in the UK, both from 2002 - 2008. He has published over 300 papers and was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Prizes for Reaction Kinetics in 1992 and Combustion and Hydrocarbon Oxidation in 2001, the Sugden Prize of the Combustion Institute in 1993, the Polanyi Medal at the 13th International Symposium on Gas Kinetics in 1994, the Haagen Smit prize in 2010 and he was the Royal Society of Chemistry’s John Jeyes Lecturer for Environmental Science in 2001. He was awarded a CBE in 2008.
