University Teacherin Chemical Engineering, Loughborough University, (Oct. 2010 to Jul. 2015)
Mechanical characterisation of particles: Measurement of hardness, Young's modulus, yield stress, fracture toughness, size, density and porosity
Size reduction: Breakage and attrition of the particles (during milling, impact, bulk compression, shear deformation and fluidisation) and study of its relationship with single particle properties
Compression behaviour of the bulk particles (in terms of deformation, compaction, crushing) and its relationship with single particle properties
Size enlargement: Granulation of powders, including wet granulation in high shear mixers, modelling and scale-up of high-shear granulators
Dispersion of powders: For the application of dry system size analysis, and dry powder inhaler
