About the Event

About Professor Nigel Mason

Professor Nigel Mason OBE is a Professor of Molecular Physics. He began his research career by exploring the simultaneous absorption of energy from photons and electrons to excite an atom. This work led to his being awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (1990-1998), which allowed him to form the Molecular Physics Group at UCL. 

He has since studied ice on planetary surfaces and on dust grains in the interstellar medium. He was also involved in the founding of the OU Astrochemistry group.

His research has led Nigel to leadership roles in many national and international research programmes and he is currently President of the Europlanet Society, Europe’s largest forum for planetary sciences and Coordinator of Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure providing access to data services, facilities and telescope networks to study planets, moons, comets and asteroids in our Solar System. 

Professor Mason's research may be broadly classified as ‘molecular physics’, which encompasses several interdisciplinary themes:

  • astrophysics and astrochemistry
  • environmental and atmospheric physics
  • plasma physics and nanolithography
  • next-generation radiotherapy
