New Chair in Brewing Science

The University of Nottingham has announced the appointment of Professor David Cook to the AB-InBev Chair in Brewing Science, following the departure of Professor Joanne Hort earlier this year.

David has been an academic in the International Centre for Brewing Science (ICBS) at the University of Nottingham since its inception in 2005, working alongside former Chair Katherine Smart to help establish Nottingham as a global force in Brewing Science Teaching and Research.

As Brewing Course Director David co-authored and delivered the University of Nottingham’s groundbreaking continual professional development courses for brewers, featuring state of the art e-learning, coupled with short intensive courses held at the University. His research interests focus on the functionality of raw materials in brewing with particular expertise in their flavour and sensory impacts, as well as related topics such as the flavour stability of beers. A successful publication record and high profile conference presentations have made David a well-known and respected face on the international brewing science circuit.
