Professor Simons graduated in 1986 from the University of Surrey with a first class honours degree in Chemical and Process Engineering. After two years employment as a Project Engineer with Neu Engineering Ltd., he joined UMIST as a research associate, where he conducted his PhD. He then rejoined the University of Surrey as a postdoctoral research fellow working on both high temperature defluidisation and granulation processes.

Professor Simons has been at UCL since 1993, when he joined as a junior lecturer. He is Director of the Centre for CO2 Technology, a multidisciplinary research and training Centre focused on the development of innovative technologies for the reduction, removal and sequestration (long-term storage) of carbon dioxide. In addition, he is Director of Engineering of Carbon8 Systems Ltd., a multi-award winning company that is commercialising a revolutionary technique for treating waste streams using carbon dioxide, known as accelerated carbonation technology.

Professor SimonsĀ is also Head of the Colloid & Surface Engineering (CSEG) Group, focusing on particulate interactions at the nano and micro length scales. Prof. Simons is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the IChemE, is Chair of the IChemE Particle Technology Subject Group and sits on the IChemE Accreditation Committee. Since 1994 he has been working with universities in Kazakhstan and, more recently, in Russia, developing modern chemical engineering degree curricula.
