I am a senior lecturer in Chemical Engineering in the Division of Chemical and Energy Engineering, School of Engineering. I joined LSBU in 2009 having previously worked at Loughborough University.

I teach Process Design (level 5) and Design Project (level 6).

My main research interests are kinetic modelling of polymerisation reactions, modelling of particle size distribution in dispersed media, emulsion and suspension polymerisation, and phase inversion emulsification. In recent years, I have been involved in production of structured cylindrical and spherical porous microparticles using microfluidic devices. I have published more than 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals including highly-regarded journals such as Langmuir.
