Dr Paul Brewer leads the science in gas metrology at NPL. His research underpins and provides traceability for global atmospheric monitoring (in particular, greenhouse gases and volatile organic compounds), advanced manufacturing and energy gases.
Paul is a Principal Research Scientist in NPL's Gas and Particle Metrology Group. He received a First Class Masters degree in Chemistry from the University of Southampton and a PhD in Organic Electronics from Imperial College London. He has over 10 years' experience in gas metrology and is vice chair of the Consultative Committee for Amount of Substance Gas Analysis Working Group, which oversees the comparability of gas analysis measurements between National Metrology Institutes worldwide. Paul also represents the UK at EURAMET, the WMO Global Atmosphere Watch and ISO committees (TC28, TC61 and TC158).
Paul has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers. In 2012, Paul's publication on NPL's silver/silver chloride reference electrode work won the CITAC Best Paper in Metrology in Chemistry Award.
Paul is a member and Chartered Chemist of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
