Mark Richards

Mark Richards is a scientist and a DJ (DJ Kemist). He was born in Nottingham in 1970 to parents who had emigrated from Jamaica and remembers successfully ‘battling with the boffins’ at his comprehensive school, often coming top in chemistry. Following a degree in chemistry he has worked (getting a PhD along the way) on the development of instruments that can detect very small amounts of particular chemicals in the air. He now splits his time between teaching physics to university students at Imperial College London, DJing and also remixing music released under his own label – Xtremix Records, and developing air pollution monitoring instruments sold by a high-tech company that he cofounded.
