Dr Davis's research interests centre upon the synthesis and characterisation of polymeric materials for the development of new properties and behaviours. The research involves a mixture of synthetic chemistry together with structural determination using for example x-ray and neutron scattering techniques. He is particularly interested in polymer orientation and electrospinning to generate polymer fibres with sub-micron diameters and is organiser with the Institute of Physics of the series of conferences "Electrospinning, Principles, Possibilities and Practice". In addition he is interested in the application of polymer characterisation techniques to Food Science. For example he is currently involved in a project to produce sustainable polymeric fibres from food waste material.
