Lecturer Dr Dan Holland is leaving the department today (30 January 2015) to take up a new position at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. A few of his friends and colleagues gathered in the Tea Room and Deputy Head of Department Dr Patrick Barrie made a short speech and presented him with a card and gift.
Dan came to Cambridge as a postgraduate student and completed his PhD in 2006. His title was Investigations of mass transfer in size exclusion chromatrography by nuclear magnetic resonance and he was supervised by Professor Lynn F Gladden.
After graduating, he stayed on as a post doc and then in 2011 he was appointed to a University Lectureship in Sustainable Reaction Engineering.
Dr Holland's research involves the development of the next generation of tomographic imaging techniques to be applied in the field of chemical engineering research, with a particular focus on reducing energy demand in the chemical industries.
We wish him all the best for his future career down under.
