Kevin Kendall  

Professor of Formulation Engineering

Professor Kevin Kendall FRS has been researching hydrogen and fuel cells over the past 30 years. He was responsible for the first hydrogen filling station in England, to fuel hydrogen vehicles running on the Birmingham campus since March 2008. There are now four stations in the Midlands and there should be eight by 2012, with a prospect of hundreds of hydrogen hybrid vehicles by 2015. Support from many companies and funding agencies have made this possible, especially Microcab, RDM, EPSRC, TSB and AWM. This has been a remarkably successful project for training engineering students in the Doctoral Training Centre funded by EPSRC to create one hundred new PhDs. Prof Kendall is also known for fracture mechanics and research on adhesion. He is the author of Molecular Adhesion and its Applications published by Kluwer in 2001, and recently co-authored Adhesion of Cells, Viruses and Nanoparticles (Springer 2010) dealing with complex biological adhesion processes.
