Clare P. Grey is the Geoffrey Moorhouse-Gibson Professor of Chemistry at Cambridge University. She received a BA and D. Phil. (1991) in Chemistry from the University of Oxford. After spending a year as a Royal Society post-doctoral Fellow at Nijmegen University and two years as a visiting scientist at DuPont CR&D in Wilmington, DE (1992-1993) she joined the faculty at Stony Brook University (SBU) as an Assistant (1994), Associate (1997) and then Full Professor (2001). She moved to Cambridge in 2009, maintaining a part-time position at SBU. She was the director of the Northeastern Chemical Energy Storage Center, a Department of Energy, Energy Frontier Research Center (2009-2010) and Associate director (2011-2014). Her recent honors and awards include the 2007 Research Award of the Battery Division of the Electrochemical Chemical Society, the 2010 Ampere and RSC John Jeyes Awards, the 2011 Royal Society Kavli Lecture and Medal for work relating to the Environment/Energy, Honorary PhD Degrees from the Universities of Orleans (2012) and Lancaster (2013), the Gunther Laukien Award from the Experimental NMR Conference (2013), the Research Award from the International Battery Association (2013) and the Royal Society Davy Award (2014). She is a Fellow of the Royal Society. Her current research interests include the use of solid state NMR and diffraction-based methods to investigate structure and dynamics in materials for energy storage and conversion and in environmental chemistry.
