For the last 15 years Neville has worked in various roles within the UK’s Scientific Research Councils. His primary interests are in Earth Sciences and particularly in palaeobiology, palaeoenvironments and climate change. He has published a variety of papers primarily in palaeobiology and stratigraphy, as well as various field guides to world famous fossiliferous sequences. Neville is an acknowledged authority on British Jurassic Stratigraphy and associated marine biotas, and is a keen field geologist. Neville conducts collaborative research with members of the Palaeobiology and Palaeoenvironments research group and is involved in student field project supervision.
Neville is a keen public engagement practitioner and member of the Institute of Physics High Energy Particle Physics Committee, he has close ties with the Physics Department at Birmingham and is also a member of the Royal Astronomical Society, Education and Communicaton Committee. Neville is also a keen scuba diver and underwater photographer and has won international underwater photography competitions.
