Dr Shuttleworth is involved with the following:
- PHYS34622 Project & Professional Skills

Ian Shuttleworth started his career with a PhD in Surface Physics earned at the Cavendish Laboratories, Cambridge University. He held post-doctoral positions at both the University of Nottingham and then Rutgers University, before accepting a faculty position at Nottingham Trent University.
Ian Shuttleworth's research interests lie in the field of chemical processes that occur during heterogeneous catalysis – that is, when the phase of the catalyst is different to the phase of the reactants. Broadly, investigations within his group follow the themes of:
- Surface and interfacial science
- Nano-chemistry, and defect chemistry
Current project fields include:
- An accurate van der Waals description of the adsorbate-surface interaction
- Strain engineering, and its consequences for catalysis
- The efficient deconvolution of x-ray diffraction images
Opportunities to carry out postgraduate research towards an MPhil/PhD exist and further information may be obtained from the NTU Graduate School.
- Editor for the journal Applied Surface Science.
