Nigel Wilding, after obtaining his degree in physics (with first-class honor) from Edinburgh University in 1988, stayed in Edinburgh to pursue his Ph.D. degree on “structural patterns at phase transitions”, which he completed in early 1992. He then spent a year as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Heidelberg, before moving to the Institute of Physics at Mainz University, where he worked with K. Binder for 3 years as a Postdoctoral Fellow. In 1996, he returned to the Physics Department at Edinburgh University to take up a Personal Research Fellowship from the Royal Society of Edinburgh. In 1999, he became a temporary Lecturer at Edinburgh University before moving in 2000 to take up a permanent lectureship at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Liverpool University. In January 2002, he was appointed to a lectureship at the Department of Physics, University of Bath, and became a Reader in May 2004. He specializes in Monte Carlo simulation studies of phase transitions in simple and complex fluids. He is also interested in the development of novel simulation methods for bridging time and length scales in complex fluids.
