I graduated from Loughborough University with a 1st class MEng in Chemical Engineering in 2015. As part of my undergraduate course, I spent a year working for GlaxoSmithKline as part of the Oral Solid Dose engineering team, working on a variety of unit processes. I also did a semester abroad at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where I completed a short research project on the mechanisms of nucleation in granulation.
I investigated understanding the mechanisms of liquid spreading in tumbling drums, with a specific interest in the spray coating of powdered detergents. I utilised a novel image analysis technique to quantify liquid contact spreading between particles, whilst varying parameters such as liquid viscosity, drum size, rotational speed, powder density and powder size distributions. I have also studied the formation of agglomerates in tumbling drums and equates this to coating variability. I was sponsored by both Procter & Gamble and SCI.
