Dr Nicholas Ballard received his BSc in Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Warwick, UK in 2005. He remained at Warwick and undertook his PhD under the supervision of Dr. ir. Stefan Bon, obtaining his doctorate in 2012. His thesis concerned the synthesis of complex polymer particles and their interactions with interfaces.


His primary research is focused on new techniques for producing polymeric particles with controllable microstructure and morphology. He is also interested in soft matter physics and the self-assembly and interactions between colloidal particles.
