Tony Ryan OBE

Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Sheffield

As the founding director of the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, Tony is at the forefront of research into food, energy and water sustainability and has been involved with several high-profile events. He knows from experience that being a conference chair can help up-and-coming researchers make their name – and that the support from Sheffield Ambassador Programme makes this achievement all the more attainable. He encourages anyone who is proud of working in Sheffield to become an ambassador.
