Professor Jacqueline Akhavan joined the academic staff at Cranfield University in 1987 after graduating from Southampton University with a PhD in polymer chemistry. In the early 1990s she was invited as a visiting research scientist to Akron University in Ohio to develop high energy rocket propellant for Norton Thiokol. In 2001 she was appointed Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies and in 2007 she was awarded a personal chair in explosive chemistry. Professor Akhavan is Head of the Centre for Defence Chemistry and is also leading the Synthesis and Formulations Group. Her main research activity is in the development of PBXs for insensitive munitions which contain inert and energetic polymers. Professor Akhavan is a Fellow of The Royal Society of Chemistry and a Chartered Chemist.
