Prof. Chuan-Yu (Charley) Wu is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering, the University of Surrey, UK. He is currently an executive editor for Powder Technology, a leading peer reviewed journal on particle systems. He co-authored a monograph on “Particle Technology and Engineering” published by Elsevier in 2016 and edited two books entitled “Discrete Element Modelling of Particulate Media” and “Particulate Materials: Synthesis, Characterisation, Processing and Modelling” published by RSC publishing. He also edited five journal special issues and published over 100 scientific papers. He has given more than 60 invited presentations and seminars at international conferences, industrial companies and universities worldwide. Prof. Wu is a member of the advisory and editorial board for “Particuology”, “Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica B (APSB) ” and “Journal of Engineering”.
Prof. Wu has expertise in powder flow， particle technology, discrete element methods, finite element analysis, modelling and simulations, pharmaceutical engineering and granular dynamics. His research has been supported by global pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Sanofi and MSD, in addition to EPSRC, IFPRI and EU. He has recently coordinated a EU FP7-ITN consortium (IPROCOM) on predictive modelling of roll compaction that consists of 14 partners and 15 researchers from 8 European countries, with a total budget of €3.8m. He is also the scientist-in-charge (PI) of an FP7 MSCA IEF (THERMOPC) and a H2020 MSCA IF (DECRON).
