Following a PhD studying polymer thin films using neutron scattering, he joined the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany) as a post-doctoral researcher. He then returned to the UK as a research scientist at the UK national ISIS Neutron Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (1992-1999), and specialized in neutron scattering studies of thin films. He then joined the Department of Materials at University of Oxford (1999-2004) as a faculty member and taught various courses in polymers and composites.
Dr. David G. Bucknall joined Georgia Tech in 2005, initially in the School of Polymer, Textile and Fiber Engineering department and subsequently in the School of Materials Science and Engineering when the schools merged in 2010. He joined Heriot-Watt University as Chair in Materials Chemistry in July 2015.
