Nia Bell PhD MPhys
Technical Consultant

Dr Nia Bell joined Oakdene Hollins as a Technical Consultant in 2015. Before this she worked in nanomaterial research at the University of California, San Diego, USA and at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK. Having specialised in nanomaterial metrology, Nia has excellent hands-on experience in the emerging sector of nanotechnology and, more generally, a critical and thorough approach to analysing technical data sets and communicating complex topics.

As a voracious generalist, Nia has worked on projects across all our business sectors. These include a review of EU nanotechnology funding and an assessment of materials critical to the EU defence sector; an in-depth study of UK mattress recycling and a survey of waste prevention at UK food and drink manufacturing sites; a report on minor metal by-production and one on end-of-life textiles; and market studies on the use of lead and zinc in Europe and on the potential for a novel RFID device being developed by a University.

Nia has a first class degree in Theoretical Physics from Durham University and a PhD in Materials Science from Imperial College London.
