Dr James Claypole

Research Officer

James is a research officer working in the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating on the development of a prototype heated blanket for social care funded by HTC Accelerate. The previous project being on the development of heated garments that were used by Gold medal winning British Olympic Athletes as part of the Application of Functional Micro and NanoMaterials Project. He has a PhD in Nanotechnology from Swansea University, which looked at the use of advanced rheological methods in the study of printing inks and how these can be related to the print performance for electrically conductive materials.
