Joe Hriljac is a Reader in Materials Chemistry and co-Director of the Birmingham Centre for Nuclear Education and Research.
He has published approximately 125 research papers in scientific journals in the field of materials chemistry, with emphasis in research into porous three- and two-dimensional inorganic solids and the use of synchrotron X-ray and neutron powder diffraction techniques for structural characterisation. Much of the recent focus has been on materials of interest for their ion exchange properties and use for the safe sequestration of radionuclides. He has received grants from the EPSRC, National Nuclear Laboratory and Diamond Light Source Ltd. and regularly uses international Facilities including Diamond, ISIS and the Advanced Photon Source.
