Natalie Belsey is a Senior Research Scientist in the Surface Technology Group. Natalie's research focuses on the use of Raman and non-linear optical spectroscopies for the characterisation of formulated products and imaging drug disposition in biological samples.
Natalie graduated with MChem in 2005 from Lincoln College, Oxford, where she remained for her DPhil in protein film electrochemistry under the supervision of Prof Fraser Armstrong. In 2009, Natalie joined the University of Bath for a postdoc with Prof Richard Guy, initially investigating the percutaneous absorption of pesticide residues and subsequently imaging transdermal drug delivery with SRS, CARS and two photon fluorescence microscopies in collaboration with the University of Exeter. Natalie joined NPL in 2013 and is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist.
