Steve has been the Director of the NCMH (National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics) - which he founded - for 30 years, a period which has seen hydrodynamic methods (analytical ultracentrifugation, light scattering, viscometry etc.) come from almost oblivion to flourish as tools for molecular characterisation. He has published over 500 research papers and books in the fields of Biomolecular Hydrodynamics and Applied Biochemistry, with nearly 11000 citations, and an h-index (Google Scholar) of 57. His Research web pages are on http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/-sczsteve/research.htm . In 2011 he was made a Knight of the 1st class of the Royal Norwegian Order of Merit by King Harald of Norway for his "outstanding contribution". He gave the 2016 Hakon Hakonsson Lecturer at Largs, and is the 2017 Svedberg Lecturer.
He is currently involved in developing hydrodynamic methodology (molecular size, shape and interaction analysis) and its application to the study of carbohydrate based polymers involved in (i) nutrition, disease and therapy, (ii) the treatment of ancient wood structures from the Viking Age (Saving Oseberg project - with the University of Oslo) and (iii) DNA research (follow-up projects from the successful Wirral & West Lancashire project with Mark Jobling and Turi King).
