Richard Brown has been awarded the Doctor of Science (DSc) Degree of Imperial College London in 'The Application of Measurement Science to Environmental Analytical Chemistry for Air Quality Studies'.

This is only the fourth non-honorary DSc awarded by Imperial College since gaining independence from the University of London in 2007. It is the first Imperial College DSc to be awarded in the Natural Sciences and the first not to be awarded to an Imperial College academic, and is exceptional in being awarded to a recipient under forty years of age.

Richard's submission consisted of 21 of his peer-reviewed papers, published at NPL between 2003 and 2012, and concerned the application of metrology to address the challenges of accurately measuring the chemical composition of particulate matter and mercury vapour in ambient air and novel techniques to ensure the quality of the data produced.
