I am a Chemical Engineer with extensive research experience accumulated over 20 years.
I have developed computational models for a wide range of problems involving dispersed-phase systems including particulate polymer reactions, emulsions and suspensions, biomedical devices, and physiological systems.
My broad scientific background has enabled me to solve complex problems using a variety of methods and computational tools. I have been able to develop and implement completely novel approaches for the solution of imperfect mixing, steric stabilization, deposition and fouling in industrial and physiological systems.
A characteristic example is a novel CFD-based compartment modelling approach which I originally developed for an industrial-scale suspension polymerization reactor. This approach was recently employed to describe a completely different problem that has never been solved before: the deposition and fine particle production in a dry powder inhaler!
This very powerful computational approach can be integrated with other particulate models, e.g., DEM, in a number of different and challenging industrial processes involving pharmaceutical powders, food emulsions and nanoemulsions.
I am looking for new challenges and am open to collaboration.
