Mike Golombok got his BSc from University of Glasgow and a Ph.D. from University of Toronto. Since then he has worked full time for Shell. He started off working for Shell’s Gas division doing research on gas combustion in novel radiant burners. Subsequently he worked in the Oil Products division of Shell where he carried out research in diesel fuel spray injection, high octane gasoline component manufacture, knock and direct fuel injection in gasoline engines. He then moved to Shell Chemicals where he worked on steam cracking to make ethylene. Mike is currently a Principal Scientist in the Exploration and Production division of Shell where he has worked on geothermal energy, novel gas to liquid conversion, centrifugal gas separation and enhanced oil recovery. His Shell activities are split between the research centres in Rijswijk and Amsterdam where he also lives. His hobbies are rowing (formerly 8’s but now mainly quadruple scull and skiff) and he also plays viola. He does speak Dutch – with a bad British accent.
