Peter J Dowding, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, is Principal Scientist at Infineum UK Limited an Exxon & Shell joint venture. He is leader for all background and fundamental studies of colloidal additives for future generations of additives used in lubricants and his research interests include: Surfactant Stabilised Nanoparticles, Steric Stabilisation, Surfactancy, Controlled Release, Supercritical Fluids and Properties of Asphaltenes. Terence Cosgrove is Professor at the School of Chemistry, University of Bristol. Simon Biggs is Professor of Particle Science and Engineering, Institute for Particle Science and Engineering, The University of Leeds and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a member of the American Chemical Society, the International Association of Colloid and Interface Scientists, and the Royal Australian Chemical Society. His main research interests are in the field of colloid and interface science and he is recognised as a pioneer in the application of atomic force microscopy to the study of colloid and particle science. A significant number of his published papers were the first of their kind in the open literature - especially the work on the influence of polymers and surfactants on inter-particle forces.
