Research Interests

My group’s primary research interest is in the development of magnetic resonance techniques to study research problems of relevance to chemical engineering. Understanding multi-component adsorption, diffusion, flow and reaction processes is central to designing and optimising processes and products in chemical engineering and biotechnology. Magnetic resonance and, in particular, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is uniquely placed to give us new insights into complex systems because it can quantify both transport processes and chemical composition. However, translating this measurement technology to applications in non-medical environments requires further development of existing magnetic resonance methodologies. The group is made up of people with diverse research backgrounds and interests, some focusing on the development of methods whilst others are more motivated to apply MRI to solve particular applications problems. Areas of particular interest to us are:

  • Next-generation MR techniques
  • Catalysis
  • Terahertz
  • Oil Recovery
  • Processing-Structure-Function Relationships in Pharmaceutical Delivery Systems
