Director of Research & Enterprise
Pharmaceutical, Chemical & Environmental Sciences
BSc, PhD, FGS, FRSC
Dr Dave Wray attained a BSc Hons Geology degree at the University of Sheffield before moving to the City of London Polytechnic to undertake a PhD. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Applied Geochemistry at the University of Greenwich and subsequently become a Reader in Applied Analytical Chemistry. He currently holds the post of Director of Research and Enterprise (Enterprise) within the School and is a member of the School Management Team.
During his time at Greenwich his research interests have diversified and now encompass topics such as modern environmental pollution, analytical chemistry, forensic science and the application of chemostratigraphy to the solving of correlation problems in petroleum reservoirs. Associated with the latter activity he also developed and manages an analytical testing laboratory that is accredited to ISO 17025.
