Biography I studied MEng Chemical Engineering at the University of Bradford and obtained a first-class degree in 2019. The dissertation that I produced in my fourth year was titled Influence of Type of Granulators on the Formation of Seeded Granules; I presented the findings of this project at the 9th International Granulation Workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. During my third year, I completed a design project which focussed on designing a polyethylene production plant.
Research My PhD project is titled Spherical Agglomeration for Continuous Pharmaceutical Manufacture; I am supervised by Dr Rachel Smith and Prof Jim Litster. This project is funded by CMAC and aims to produce a multiscale model for the spherical agglomeration process and validate this experimentally.
