Professor Gareth Law has 15 years of research experience in Radiochemistry and Environmental Chemistry. His key research interests include radioactive waste disposal, nuclear accident response, contaminated land management, materials chemistry (relevant to nuclear decommissioning), and nuclear forensics. He has a keen interest in using cutting edge analytical techniques in his research, including synchrotron-based spectroscopies and electron microscopy.
At Helsinki Gareth will continue to pursue cutting edge radiochemistry research and will include radiochemistry research in his undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. The aim here is to train a new generation of Radiochemists as this is an area of Chemistry where a skilled work-force is very much in demand.
