Jason Hallett completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2002. He took up a Marshall-Sherfield Postdoctoral Fellowship in Sustainable Chemistry in 2006 in the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College. He is now a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College. His current research interests involve the solvation behaviour of ionic liquids and the use of ionic liquids in biorefining, specifically the production of sustainable chemical feedstocks and lignocellulosic biofuels. He also works on multidisciplinary research projects across several production scales, from laboratory to pilot scale, involving bioprocessing.
