Saiful Islam, born in 1963 in Pakistan, is a Professor of Computational Materials Chemistry at the University of Bath. His research focuses on computer modelling of conduction in materials, with ‘green’ energy applications. Saiful’s parents emigrated to the UK in the 1960s so that his father could work as an administrator in the Pakistan High Commission in London. Following secondaryand further education in an all-boys comprehensive school, Saiful read Chemistry at University College London [UCL], 1981-1984. His PhD, also completed at UCL (in 1987), concerned the computer modelling of crystalline materials. Post-doctoral work at Eastman Kodak Labs in Rochester, New York, US was followed by appointments as Lecturer at the University of Surrey and, from 2006, as Professor at the University of Bath.
